SanDisk Extreme Pro 128GB UDMA 7 is $1,500 CompactFlash

SanDisk has revealed its fastest CompactFlash card yet, the Extreme Pro 128GB UDMA 7, and it's $1.5k of super high speed storage. Intended for seriously pro photographers, the 128GB memory card is capable of up to 100 MB/s write speeds and up to 97 MB/s read speeds.

The only issue is that, SanDisk tells us, there's no camera out there currently capable of UDMA 7 speeds. Retail product marketing director Susan Park assures us that's not necessarily an issue, though; the card is backward compatible with UDMA 6 interface cameras and should still sustain the highest possible transfer rates. It'll also work with existing PCI Express Card readers.

SanDisk expect the new Extreme Pro 128GB UDMA-7 CF Card to retail for $1,499.99; it's available to pre-order now. We'll be putting it through its paces as soon as they have a production sample available.
