Pretec have broken their own CompactFlash record, with the introduction of the highest capacity and fastest CF cards in the world. The capacity medal is taken by the 100GB 233X card which, along with a 64GB version, replaces the 48GB 233X CF previously Pretec’s flagship. Meanwhile the speed record is held by the 333X 32GB and 50GB CF cards, capable of read/write speeds up to 50 MB per second.
Both ranges use ruggedized metal housings for increased durability. Up to four 64GB 233X cards can be combined to make a 256GB SATA SSD by using Pretec’s own Q-SATA, a flexible, scalable and modular SATA/PATA design.
The new cards will debut at Photokina 2008, with the 233X 64GB and 333X 32GB CF cards available by the time of the show priced at $399 and $630 respectively.
