The speed gained through using the latest CFexpress cards is incredible, and the latest Lexar Professional Diamond card offers a way to maximise the transfer speeds up to 1900MB/s. The only issue is that until now, almost no card readers could keep up with the pace.
Now the Lexar Professional CFexpress Type B USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 Reader has arrived, and with this high-speed connection, this CFexpress card reader will enable you to download files at speeds just shy of Lexar’s fastest card.
There is, however, one issue for Mac users; while PC users can, for the most part, take advantage of the ultrafast speeds as long as they have USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 ports, Apple MacBook Pro users are unable to access this generation of USB. MacBook Pro’s skipped 3.2 Gen 2×2 generation adn went straight to USB 4 and ultra-fast Thunderbolt 4 without addind what was needed in between.
While PC users benefit from the 20GB/s transfer speeds, Mac users must dwell on fast but comparatively sluggish 10GB/s.
