Fujifilm 310x CompactFlash is world’s fastest memory card

Another day, another "World's fastest"; this time it's the turn of Fuji, who are frothing with excitement over their new CompactFlash card.  The 310x version offers pro-photographers (because it's most likely they who will take advantage of such things) the fastest sustained write speed of any memory card currently available.  Requiring a UDMA compatible digital SLR or camcorder, the new card boasts a write speed of 46.5MB/sec.

I've been tempted to use a solid state drive for the primary disk for my desktop. Of course I only need to look at the current prices in order to come to my senses.

But what if you could combine two such cards to create one drive?
