Super Talent Launches CFast Storage Card

December 4, 2009 | Zoltan Arva-Toth | Accessories | Comment |

Super Talent has released its newest product, the CFast storage card, which has a bandwidth of 375MB/s, i.e. four times more than the fastest High Speed 600x (90MB/s) CompactFlash card while still keeping the small original CF mechanical form factor.  With a Super Talent CFast storage card installed, there will be no waiting time for the camera to catch up, and it will be much swifter to view pictures on a camera or to copy them to computer, Super Talent promises. The company is offering five different CFast storage cards, 8GB and 16GB based on Single Level Cell flash and 8GB, 16GB and 32GB based on Multi Level Cell flash. Do note that the first generation of these CFlash storage cards supports transfer speeds up to 200MB/s rather than the theoretical maximum of 375MB/s, but this is still over twice the speed of the fastest CF cards on the market today. Pricing to be confirmed.
