NEWS: Sony Jumping Into CFexpress with an Ultra-Tough 1700MB/s Card
The rise of CFexpress memory cards is accelerating. Just months after ProGrade Digital unveiled the world’s first 1 terabyte CFExpress card, Sony has announced its own tougher and faster CFexpress card.
The upcoming Sony TOUGH CFexpress Type B memory cards will boast blazing-fast speeds of up to 1700MB/s for reading and 1480MB/s for writing. By comparison, the ProGrade 1TB card tops off at 1400MB/s read and 1000MB/s+ write speeds.
The Sony card will be about 3 times faster than Sony’s fastest CFast memory card (which has a 530MB/s read speed), perfect for high-res cameras.
“With a write speed of up to 1480MB/s, this card meets future requirement needs for secure industry data-recording or requirements from professionals to capture hi-resolution images or high-bitrate video,” Sony says.
But with more speed comes less capacity: Sony’s card will initially be launched in a 128GB capacity, with 256GB and 512GB models planned for the future.
