Keeping up with the demands of modern digital cinema cameras with hefty recording formats, Lexar has just unveiled its DIAMOND Series CFexpress Type B cards—claiming to be the world’s fastest—and brand-new GOLD Series CFexpress Type A cards. These will be perfect for advanced 8K, 6K, and 4K raw workflows.
CFexpress Type B took over for professional applications, thanks to its dramatic speed boost. The DIAMOND Series takes the title of “world’s fastest” with read speeds up to 1900 MB/s. It’ll also offer impressive write speeds of up to 1700 MB/s. These will handle the most intense recording formats available today.
All the cards released today support the VPG 400 spec, meaning that they will maintain sustained write speeds of 400 MB/s. This should grant peace of mind to professional video users. The cards are also shock- and vibration-proof.
The cards will be available later this year.
