Pretec 16gb Compact Flash

Pretec have just announced that they will be shipping 16gb Compact Flash cards.

The company says the demand for higher capacity and better performing flash cards has been increasing with introduction of ever higher resolution digital cameras and the emergence of new multimedia appliances and industrial applications. Over the last 10 years the company has seen a 4,000 times increase in CF capacity from the first announcement of Pretec 4MB CF card to this 16GB unit.

Access speed can be up to 80X (12MB/s) for Pretec industrial CF card and up to 133X (20MB/s) for Pretec commercial CF card. Pretec 16GB CF card will start sampling in October with mass production in Q4 of this year.

I don’t know what price these 16gb cards will be selling for but the price of the 12gb cards is as high as $10,000+ in some online stores!!
