Lexar boosts photo management card to 133X

Lexar Media said Tuesday is popular Professional 8GB CompactFlash memory cards had been increased to a 133X rating, or about 20 megabits per second.

The cards are a workhorse for professional and high-end amateur photographers who use them to manage large files of images.

"Those who shoot in RAW format require a vast amount of storage capacity, but also need reliable high-speed performance at all steps in the digital imaging process," said Lexar's John Omivik. "Our new 133X 8GB cards directly address and satisfy both needs and, as a result, are ideal for photographers shooting in all situations."

The devices include image recovery and various management capabilities. They carry a suggested retail price of $425 and will be available next month.
