Dedicated to fulfilling the demanding requirements of performance-conscious photographers, Transcend Information (Transcend), a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, proudly releases its Extreme Plus 600X CompactFlash cards with Turbo MLC technology. These new 600X CF cards raise the bar with blazing fast transfer speeds of up to 92 MB/s read and 87 MB/s write, which makes them as ideal choice for professional photographers and enthusiasts who use digital single lens reflex (DSLR) cameras.




Transcend's Extreme Plus 600X CompactFlash cards operate in quad-channel mode using Ultra DMA (UDMA) 6, the fastest speed available for flash cards. In comparison with 300X CF cards, this new version offers nearly double the read write speeds for unparalleled file transfer performance. Taking full advantage of the UDMA interface, Transcend's 600X CF cards are able to instantly store extremely high-resolution image data, which makes consecutive shooting and non-stop video recording easier than ever. With impressive transfer speeds and enormous storage capacity, users are guaranteed to get the very best performance results from their digital cameras and share their digital artwork with the world!

To assure robust, long-life durability and guaranteed performance, Transcend's 600X CF cards are manufactured using only the most advanced Flash controllers and premium quality NAND Flash memory chips. In addition, each card contains built-in ECC (Error Correction Code) that automatically detects and corrects errors during data transfer, and also utilizes a sophisticated wear-leveling algorithm for consistent long-life operation. For further peace of mind, all Transcend CF cards are comprehensively tested for compatibility, speed and reliability, and also carry Transcend's renowned international Lifetime Warranty. Now available in 8 GB and 16 GB capacities, Transcend's Extreme Plus 600X CompactFlash cards are the definitive storage media choice for any high-end DSLR camera.

"92 MB/s read and 87 MB/s write" is faster than 600X....

Oh'wells I suppose rather under-state your performance & leave room to impress.

At least we are FINALLY seeing an actual improvement in this kind of technology, good on 'ya Transcend.

Now... if you can just get around to doing this in SDHC...

Edit : Although that may be useless on current USB2, USB3 is Just around the corner :]

Bout time we got speed-competitive flash media. While this could mean bigger bursts for dslr users and less time wasted, this could easily mean SSDs in tons more computing applications.

Well what I'm really waiting for is those front panel card readers, you know the ones that fit in the "long forgotten" floppy drive bays? - Yeah - Those on a SATA bus...

C'mon guys (Transcend ... Brando... Adata... ) do your homework :p
