world's fastest CFexpress Type A card


Lexar has announced the Lexar Professional CFexpress Type A Card Gold Series in 320GB capacity. It’s ideally suited for use in cameras such as the new Sony A7R V and Sony A7 IV which are compatible with CFexpress Type A cards as well as SD-type media.

The new 320GB Lexar CFexpress card is capable of read speeds up to 900MB/s and write speeds up to 800MB/s. It’s also rated as Video Performance Guarantee 400 (VPG 400), which means it has a minimum write speed of 700MB/s and video is captured without any dropped frames. The faster transfer times of the CFexpress Type A cards are required to enable the most advanced video features of compatible cards.

According to Lexar, the new card is temperature-proof and able to withstand an operating temperature range from -10ºC to 70°C (14ºF to 158ºF) and non-operating temperatures from -20ºC to 85°C (-4ºF to 185ºF). The card is also shock resistant and
vibration resistant.

Lexar is selling the 320GB CFexpress Type A card bundled with the Lexar Professional CFexpress Type A / SD USB 3.2 Gen 2 Reader.
