SanDisk Debuts 256 GB CompactFlash Card with 160 MB/s Transfer Speed

SanDisk Corporation, a global leader in flash memory storage solutions, today announced the availability of the 256 GB SanDisk Extreme Pro CompactFlash memory card, the world's first high-capacity, high-performance CompactFlash card with the latest Video Performance Guarantee (VPG-65) specification. Also being announced by SanDisk today are faster speeds across all other capacities of the SanDisk Extreme Pro CompactFlash line of memory cards.

"SanDisk has been at the forefront with storage solutions that enable the broader adoption of new video capture technologies. We always design our SanDisk Extreme Pro cards with professional photographers and videographers in mind," said Susan Park, director, mobile and imaging worldwide retail product marketing, SanDisk. "Cinema-quality 4K video capture demands tremendous performance and capacity, which is exactly what we have delivered with the new 256 GB SanDisk Extreme Pro CompactFlash card."

The card delivers minimum sustained write speeds of 65 MB/s, optimized to capture 4K and Full HD video. The 256 GB SanDisk Extreme Pro CompactFlash card has industry-leading transfer speeds of up to 160 MB/s, designed to dramatically improve workflow efficiencies, and delivers fast shot speeds of up to 140 MB/s for advanced functions such as fast action and continuous burst mode shots.

"The speed and capacity of SanDisk Extreme Pro CompactFlash cards, as well as the ability to shoot and store 4K video directly to a CompactFlash card, are a major step forward for professional photographers and videographers," said Sam Nicholson, founder, Stargate Studios. "My work rarely allows for a second chance to capture a big shot or important footage, so when I select SanDisk memory cards, I'm trusting them with assets that are essential to me and my clients."

SanDisk Extreme Pro memory cards are designed for professionals and are backed by a lifetime limited warranty. The cards are durability tested, include RTV silicone coating inside for added protection against shock and vibration, and perform in extreme temperatures from minus 13 degrees Fahrenheit to 185 degrees Fahrenheit. The cards also include a one year downloadable offer for RescuePRO media recovery software, which lets photographers recover their images in case of accidental deletion.
