Faster Flash

We’re all familiar with the trajectory here: Every year flash-memory speeds get speedier. Now it seems the CompactFlash card, used in many consumer and pro digital SLRs, is about to get, yes, faster

A faster type of CompactFlash card that is set to boost digital SLR shooting speeds is expected to get the green light next month. 

First showcased in the United States earlier this year, the CFast card is said to be capable of delivering a data transfer rate of 375MB/sec. 

Current CompactFlash cards can achieve a maximum rate of 45MB/sec.
