San Jose, CA—Lexar unveiled what it is touting as the world’s fastest Lexar Professional CFexpress Diamond series Type B and Lexar Professional CFexpress Gold Type A cards. The cards debuted at the 2022 NAB Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“Lexar has a long history of providing industry leading memory solution for professional users. We are excited to continue this tradition with the world’s fastest Lexar Professional CFexpress Type B Diamond series cards and Lexar Professional CFexpress Type A Gold series cards.
“These cards will dramatically help professionals speed up their workflow while providing the quality, performance and reliability they’ve come to expect from Lexar,” said Joel Boquiren, general manager, Lexar.
Lexar Professional CFexpress Diamond Type B Cards
To meet the demand for high-performance memory solutions by professional filmmakers and content creators, the new CFexpress Diamond Type B series provides read speeds of up to 1900MB/s. Consequently, the cards can dramatically accelerate a postproduction workflow. Moreover, they provide write speeds of up to 1700MB/s. Subsequently, they enable the quick capture of smooth RAW 8K, 6K and 4K video. The cards are also backward compatible with select XQD cameras.
Lexar Professional CFexpress Gold Type A Cards
In addition, to leverage the capabilities of next-gen cinema cameras and mirrorless cameras adopting the CFexpress Type A format, Lexar unveiled Professional CFexpress Type A Gold series cards.
These cards feature speeds of 900MB/s read and 800MB/s write. As a result, users can capture high-quality images as well as 8K, 6K and 4K video.
Lexar will also launch the CFexpress Type A reader in the coming months. It will support ultrahigh-speed USB 10Gbps transfer protocol via USB Type-C.
The new cards also support the VPG 400 specification. That spec guarantees a minimum sustained write speed of 400MB/s to capture professional-quality video for compatible devices. Specifically for professional video users, it also ensures content is captured seamlessly with no drop frames.
Moreover, the new cards are durable and can operate in the harshest of conditions. They are shock– and vibration-proof and can also operate in extreme temperatures (14ºF to 158ºF). What’s more, for added peace of mind, both cards are backed by a lifetime limited warranty.
Lexar Professional CFexpress Type B Diamond and Lexar Professional CFexpress Type A Gold series cards are now under development. Lexar plans to make them available in Q2 2022.
