I believe the first link is the old Extreme-III (which had a speed of something like 20MB/s under ideal conditions), and the second link is the new Extreme-III which was re-engineered, and has a speed of 30MB/s under ideal conditions. I've read that the new Extreme-III is UDMA capable, but the Sandisk site does not say so.

In the last year, Sandisk has bumped up the speed of all of their cards (Ultra-II is now 15MB/s, Extreme III is 30MB/s, Extreme IV and Ducatti are 45MB/s). You might find sites that are selling existing stock of the slower cards, or possibly they just haven't updated their pictures.
