Earlier this year, the CompactFlash Association unveiled the new CFexpress 2.0 specification that'll be available in three form factors: Type A, Type B and Type C. A number of manufacturers revealed plans to offer these next-generation cards and it now appears SanDisk is one of the first off the line with its new SanDisk Extreme Pro CFexpress 2.0 Type B card, which is currently for sale in various European markets.

As we previously reported, the CFexpress 2.0 Type B card features the same dimensions as the existing XQD card, bringing with it a Gen3, 2 lane interface and a maximum theoretical speed of 2,000MB/s. According to SanDisk, its new Extreme Pro CFexpress Type B card gets close to that limit with read speeds of up to 1700MB/s and a write speed up to 1400MB/s.

SanDisk says this model can capture ‘raw 4K video with sustainable, low-latency performance,’ and it can be used with the data recovery software RescuePRO Deluxe. The model has appeared for sale in 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities on Amazon for several European markets, including the UK, for £174.99 to £691.99. In the US these will be sold for between $150 and $600.
