Let's face it, a new memory card is rarely an exciting news story - a slightly larger capacity here, or a little extra speed there. But never mind disrupting the CFexpress Type A market - Angelbird has completely redefined it with its latest card.

The next closest capacity is the Sony 640GB CFexpress Type A TOUGH Memory Card, with less than two thirds the storage space of the 1TB Angelbird offering.
