Kingston speeds up CompactFlash to 266X

updated 01:15 pm EDT, Mon July 23, 2007

Kingston 266X CF Card

Kingston today doubled the performance of its Ultimate-series Compact Flash cards with new 266X models, providing a dramatic speed boost to photographers with digital SLR cameras whose work may thrive on burst shots or quick transfers to a computer. While providing official speed just short of its Lexar 300X rival, it should write data at a minimum of 30MB per second -- double that of the older 133X, Kingston boasts. Freely downloadable MediaRECOVER software supported by the cards will let Macs and Windows PCs salvage damaged or deleted photos in the event of a mistake.

With the speed increase also comes a capacity boost for the launch, Kingston says. An 8GB model will join the Ultimate range for $280 alongside faster versions of the company's 2GB and 4GB models priced at $83 and $144 respectively. The trio of card updates should be available later today through Kingston and other electronics shops.
