Sandisk bumps the capacity of its Extreme III CF cards

Professional photographers will be able to enjoy fast read/write speeds and increased capacity with Sandisk's latest additions to its Extreme III CompactFlash family. The company today announced new 12GB and 16GB models which it says are the highest capacity cards in the world.

The cards will have minimum read/write speeds of 20MB/sec thanks to the in-house developed Enhanced Super-Parallel Processing (ESP) technology. The cards are also guaranteed to function in temperatures ranging from minus 13F to 185F and include RescuePro software for image recovery in case of accidental deletion.

The Sandisk Extreme III 12GB and 16GB CompactFlash will be available in December with price tags of $779.99 and $1,049.99 respectively. Both cards will come backed with a lifetime limited warranty in the United States.

Can you provide a link showing that what you are saying about Apple and Samsung is true. I'm sure that would have been reported if it were a real problem.

For its part, Samsung has not managed, for technical reasons, to produce enough MLC chips, and it has already caused Apple to delay launches. With a full merger or even a partial agreement behind them, SanDisk, Toshiba, and M-Systems will move full steam ahead with the implementation of x4 on the MLC product lines in Japan, and the three will have a tremendous advantage in the market over Samsung, which only manages to produce a quarter of its output using MLC.
