    New High Performance XQD card unveiled, 125MB/s write speed is now real

    The Compact Flash Association just unveiled a new high-performance memory card format, called XQD. It is based on the PCI Express specification. XQD card size is larger than SD and smaller than CF card. It measures 38.5×29.8×3.8mm, where SD card is about 32x24x2.1mm and CF card measures 43x36x5 mm.

    XQD card has a theoretical maximum transfer speed of 5Gbps or 625MB/s with write speed of 125MB/s. The impressive performance should allow the XQD cards to fully replace their CF predecessors in high-end DSLR cameras and digital full HD camcorders.
