Toshiba prepares ultra high-speed SD cards

Toshiba High-Speed SD Card

Professional photographers often choose CompactFlash cards over the Secure Digital format due to transfer speeds. The latter is often considerably slower than its larger rival, severely limiting the burst rate for photos or the extraction of those photos after a completed shoot. Toshiba seeks to change this perception by releasing a new line of high-speed SD cards that narrow the considerable gap between CF and SD. Starting this fall, Toshiba will ship SD cards in its new "ultra high-speed" series that meet the newly-established Class 6 transfer rate, which signifies a minimum 6MB per second when the cards are plugged into devices that can match their speed. These cards will also reach burst speeds of 20MB per second in ideal conditions. The first models range between 512MB and 2GB in capacity and will ship to Japan in October, with international shipments following in November.
