CES 2008: Swift shooters supported with superior speed SDHC. Lexar has launched 8GB SDHC cards in all its products lines, including Professional 133X cards with their category defying 20MB/sec minimum sustained write performance.
Diminutive memory card update day continues at DPReview as Lexar announces 8GB SDHC cards in Standard, Platinum II 60X and Professional 133X flavors. The key thing to note is that the speeds quoted refer to minimum sustained write speed, rather than the maximum data transfer speed (which usually refers to reading from the card and need not be maintained). As such, the Professional 133X card doesn't just conform to the SDHC 'class 6,' but could be classed as 'class 20,' if such a thing existed. And the Platinum II 60X, with its 9MB/sec minimum sustain write speed also exceeds 'class 6.'
