New faster CFexpress Type B Gold Series memory cards from Lexar have been released, offering read and write speeds of up to 1,900MB/s and 1,500MB/s, respectively.
The cards' maximum read/write speeds in their prior iterations (with capacities of 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB) were 1,750MB/s and 1,500MB/s, respectively. The series now includes new 1TB and 2TB iterations.
With a minimum continuous write speed of 1,300MB/s, Lexar claims the cards can record 8K RAW footage without the fear of frame drops. The new Gold Series cards' minimum sustained write speed is just 300MB/s slower than that of Lexar's top-of-the-line Diamond Series cards.
