Fuji touts world's fastest CompactFlash

Super-speedy snapping

Get your finger on the shutter button, because Fuji claims its latest CompactFlash memory card boasts the world’s fastest write speed.

The 310x version of Fuji’s CompactFlash card uses a “specially designed controller” and the “latest SLC flash memory chips” to provide a write speed of up to 46.5MB/s. Fuji’s next step down CompactFlash, the 100x range, has a write speed of just 15MB/s.

Fuji’s latest card just pip’s Sony’s 300x to the post, because it only has a write speed of 45MB/s. So, if time is of the essence, then Fuji’s 310x should probably be your storage medium of choice.

Trigger-happy snappers can get the 310x card from July in either a 4GB, 8GB or 16GB capacity version, with prices ranging between £50 (€65/$100) and £210 (€265/$420).
