Lexar always seems to push the envelope when it comes to new memory card announcements, and CES 2013 is no exception. Today the company is outing their Professional 1100x XQD card and the High-Performance 600x UHS-I memory card. At the moment of writing this post, the only camera that takes XQD cards is the Nikon D4. But for owners of the demonically powerful camera, you should know that when using this card, you can achieve a read transfer speed of 1100x (168 MB/s): which is great for burst mode or HD video recording.
Lexar also updated their SD card line with the new UHS-I Memory cards with 600x (90MB/s) minimum guaranteed read transfer speed–or so the company claims. These are Class 10 cards with the slowest speed snailing in at 90MB/s transfer speeds and comes in at 256GB. Don’t expect this to be cheap either: it will run you $999.99.
