Lexar today announced the Lexar Professional 600x CompactFlash (CF) card. The new Lexar memory card provides enhanced speed and performance for professional photographers and advanced photo enthusiasts capturing high-definition images and videos on digital SLRs. The Lexar Professional 600x CF memory card will offer increased speed and performance, with a guaranteed minimum sustained write speed capability of 600x (90MB/s) when paired with a UDMA 6 enabled device.


The Lexar Professional 600x CF memory card increases workflow with minimum sustained read speeds of 533x (80MB/s), or faster when paired with a UDMA 6-enabled reader such as the new Lexar Professional ExpressCard CompactFlash Reader. Available in 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB capacities, the Lexar Professional 600x CF card will significantly improve in-camera performance by rapidly clearing a camera’s buffer and making fast cameras even faster so photographers can keep shooting. The Lexar Professional 600x CF cards will begin shipping on October 30 in 8GB and 16GB capacities.
