Lexar Launches Industry First 256GB Memory Card

January 10th, 2012

Lexar-256GB.jpgIt wasn’t that long ago that we
celebrated an 8GB card, and not far before that we marvelled at 1GB CF MicroDrives.
Today memory card storage capacities are getting absolutely
ridiculous. The latest from Lexar raises the bar yet again.

The company’s newest contribution to
the memory race is a whopping 256GB CF card – twice the capacity of
the highest storage card out now. It offers 400x speed which
guarantees a minimum transfer rate of 60MB a second. That’s enough
for high FPS shooting and 1080p video recording.

The new capacities of the Lexar
Professional 400x CF card empower photographers to just keep
shooting,” says marketing director Manisha Sharma, “without
the need to change cards or risk missing once-in-a-lifetime shots or
footage.”

Lexar’s 256GB CF card will be available
in the first half of the year at a yet unnamed price.
