    A-DATA Technology Co., Ltd., the global leader in memory products, just released the Turbo Series 120x CompactFlash card that offers outstanding Windows Vista ReadyBoost support. The Turbo Series 120x CompactFlash card comes in 512MB, 1GB, 2GB, 4GB and 8GB sizes to provide plenty of memory space to store big files and images. This product launch demonstrates how this card's superior performance is opening new types of application support.

    CompactFlash cards have long been a mainstay in the flash card market and are well known for dependability and large storage capacities. Although there are many new types of flash cards with smaller sizes, CompactFlash cards hold a strong position for high capacity and superior performance flash storage. CompactFlash cards are used in numerous types of Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) cameras as well as industrial PC applications.

    Following the earlier launch of the Professional Series PD7 Turbo Speed USB 2.0 Flash Disk certified to support the Windows Vista ReadyBoost function, the Turbo Series 120x CompactFlash card also supports ReadyBoost. This card passes the same rigorous quality and testing, and features a high-speed design that has been engineered to give users another perfect solution to speed up computer performance by utilizing the Windows Vista ReadyBoost function. When combined with A-DATA's 52-in-1 card reader, the Turbo Series 120x CompactFlash card becomes the best and easiest way to use the ReadyBoost function to speed up Desktop and Notebook performance, extend HDD life, and even extend a notebook computer's battery life.

    For professional photographers using DSLR cameras, the A-DATA Turbo Series 120x CompactFlash card offers fast read/write speeds and large capacities that support the fast, continuous high-speed shooting they need to capture that perfect shot. Not only does the A-DATA Turbo Series 120x CompactFlash card meet the needs of professionals, it also satisfies Vista PC users as well. One card with two uses doubles the fun.

    As the biggest supplier of flash solutions in Asia, A-DATA continuously launches the most advanced and value-adding products that match customers’ needs. The new Turbo Series 120x CompactFlash card lets users experience Window Vista at its best.

    *Benefit of Windows ReadyBoost:
    “Windows ReadyBoost” is a technology built into Windows Vista that caches disk reads onto a flash memory device. Once activating this feature, Windows Vista will create a readyboost.sfcache file on the flash memory device. ReadyBoost does not cache file writes—it is a write-through cache. Windows ReadyBoost can improve system performance because it can retrieve data kept on the flash memory (a USB drive, SD Card, Compact Flash, or other flash memory device) faster than it can retrieve data kept on the hard disk drive (HDD), decreasing the time you need to wait for your PC to respond. Combined with Window SuperFetch technology, this can help drive impressive improvements in system responsiveness. The Windows ReadyBoost Technology will speed up system performance, reduce HDD Read/Write times to increase HDD life, and save power for notebooks using a battery, with Windows Vista certified devices.

    Was going to say "not again some stupid vista ready product, that has no advantage compared to previous non-vista ready ones" but read that bottom part, maybe it could work for a while. Not like flash memories are ment for constant writing, you still need a reader and so much data passing through usb makes me wonder what does it do for stability/performance. Then again if it's not used for gaming, just for boosting photoshop or firefox (crazy slow starter if it's minimized, I want to kill FF every time I try to mazimize it again) then it could work for a long time, but kinda useless.

    News are always good, keep posting ;) I'd maybe just like to first get Vista on the market and the Vista Ready stuff :p Or maybe they are for customers that can't yet buy the real stuff, so they get these to ease the waiting pain :)
