LexarDuring PMA Lexar Media announced its 8GB Professional Series CompactFlash card. Lexar's new 8GB CompactFlash card delivers a 40X speed-rating, signifying a minimum sustained write speed capability of 6MB/s. By maintaining a close alignment with manufacturers who offer high-end digital cameras that create high-resolution files, which can be over 8MB each, Lexar's new 8GB memory card meets the needs of professional photographers who require capacity, speed and reliability. However pricing of the Card is not official yet, unofficial prices are $3000. We don't see any market for it yet, prices will have to decrease drastically before cards like the 8GB will gain any interest at all.
Lexar Media announces 8GB CompactFlash type IILexar's new 8GB CompactFlash cards incorporate Lexar's new Write Acceleration (WA) technology to provide increased in-camera speed performance in high-resolution CF cameras on the market. The new Write Acceleration includes optimized firmware to reduce overhead associated with transferring data, and provides a larger controller buffer to accommodate transferring up to 32 sectors of data in one command, in cameras supporting this feature. Lexar Media’s 8GB CF cards will also include a free copy of the company's award-winning Image Rescue 2.0 image recovery software.

Like Lexar's 4GB CompactFlash card, the 8GB card is CompactFlash Type II and requires the host camera to support the FAT 32 file system. The new 8GB CompactFlash cards will be available at in May of this year.
