Lexar reveals CFexpress 2.0 Type B Memory Card

Lexar has just announced the release of an all-new CFexpress 2.0 Type B memory card at this year’s NAB.

This new card is aimed at the broadcast market where the exceptional transfer speeds offered by CFexpress are required.

Flip back to the world of CSCs and DSLRs and the demands on flash storage while high don’t quite reach the same high-level demands.

However, with the likes of the Nikon Z6 and Z7 packing in high-end video features and the likely hood that the next firmware update to this camera could well see CFexpress support added it’s well worth taking note.

The card will offer transfer speeds of up to 1650MB/s and utilises PCIs 3.0 NVMe protocol for sustained write speeds of 1000MB/s.

At present we don’t have any cameras that come close to the demands that this card can sustain. But as we all know technology leaps forward so it’s only a matter of time until CFexpress will be as common as the humble SD card.
