Lexar is updating its CFexpress Type B memory card range to include more capacity options, and increased transfer speeds. The changes affect all three tiers in Lexar's Type B range: Diamond, Gold, and Silver.
Headlining the revised line-up is a new 512GB entry in the top-end Diamond series. This supplements the existing 128GB and 256GB capacities, all of which are capable of blazing-fast speeds of up to 1900MB/s read and 1700MB/s write. Diamond-series cards also boast a minimum sustained write speed of 1600 MB/s, as well VPG 400 (Video Performance Guarantee) certification, ensuring you can reliably record high resolution RAW, ProRes, and even 8K footage.
Next up are two new capacities added to the mid-tier Gold series. 1TB and 2TB options are now available, with the rest of the range consisting of 128GB, 256GB and 512GB cards. The two new high-capacity cards are also faster than the rest of the Gold range, with up to 1900MB/s read speed and up to 1500MB/s write. Compare this with the lower capacities which top out at 1750MB/s read.
Lastly there's the slightly more budget-conscious Silver series. Where previously these cards were significantly slower than the Gold range, with up to 1000MB/s read and 600MB/s write speeds, the refreshed Silver series can now manage up to 1750MB/s read and 1300MB/s write, making them a far more compelling choice than before. Lexar is also adding a 512GB-capacity card to the range, boosting the current 128GB and 256GB line-up.
