SanDiskSanDisk announced today that is has quadrupled the capacity of its high-speed SanDisk Ultra II line of flash memory cards that includes the development of a new 8GB CompactFlash Type I card. The top end SanDisk Ultra II Memory Stick PRO and SD cards now boast 4GB and 2GB of capacity respectively. The announcement was made at the Photokina trade show where SanDisk is demonstrating products in Hall 1.2, aisle A, Booth 059. Each SanDisk Ultra II card features a minimum write speed of 9 megabytes per second (MB/sec.) and a minimum read speed of 10MB/sec. (Results based on testing with the popular HDBENCH benchmark software; actual results in digital cameras will vary by camera model.)
SanDisk quadruples top capacity of Ultra II cards The Ultra II cards are primarily targeted at serious photographers with 4-megapixel or higher resolution digital cameras that require fast, high capacity digital film cards to quickly shoot many high resolution images.

Martin Achatzi, owner and general manager at Foto Achatzi in Bad Laasphe, a leading photography retailer, said, "SanDisk is a well known brand and the SanDisk Ultra II cards have been very popular with digital photographers who use cameras such as the Canon EOS Rebel or the Nikon D70. Our customers expect high quality products with matching performance and we believe the new high capacity Ultra II cards will exceed the expectations of our customers."

Tanya Chuang, SanDisk retail product marketing manager, said, "The award-winning SanDisk Ultra II line represents an ideal combination of high capacities, durability and proven performance at exceptional price points. These cards are designed for improved performance in a wide range of cameras rather than a select few. Once again, the SanDisk Ultra II line raises the performance and capacity bar that all other competitors will struggle to meet."

The SanDisk Ultra II cards are designed to be a reasonably priced, high performance solution for the photography channel while the new SanDisk Extreme III line, with its even higher performance, is for the professional photographer who needs the absolute highest performance and maximum reliability.

Availability
The SanDisk Ultra II product line is available in CompactFlash, Memory Stick PRO and SD formats.
