ProGrade Digital has announced a new CFexpress Type A memory card – and thankfully it's $70-$100 cheaper than the version from Sony, which until now had enjoyed a monopoly on the Type A cards. 

The ProGrade Digital CFexpress Type A Cobalt comes in a 160GB capacity, and enjoys a maximum read speed of 800MB/s and a burst write speed of 700MB/s – which is great news for users of the Sony A1 and Sony A7S III, the main cameras that use the CFexpress Type A format.
