SanDisk officially announced the new Extreme Pro CFexpress Cards Type B and Extreme PRO CFexpress Card Reader. The new SanDisk Extreme PRO CFexpress type B memory cards come in four different capacities – 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB. The 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB models provides read speeds of up to 1700 MB/s and write speeds of up to 1200 MB/s, while the 64GB model hits read speeds of up to 1500 MB/s and write speeds of up to 800 MB/s.
It seems that CFexpress Cards will be the standard of future memory cards for internal high resolution RAW video recording, because the theoretical maximum speeds are ridiculously high. And the SanDisk Extreme Pro CFexpress cards can be supported through firmware update with XQD compatible cameras.
The SanDisk Extreme PRO CFexpress cards as well as the CFexpress card reader are now available for preorder online with an expected shipping date sometime later this year.
SanDisk 64GB Extreme PRO CFexpress Card Type B: starts at $149.99 at B&H.
SanDisk Extreme PRO CFexpress Card Reader: $49.99 at B&H.
