Lexar has already given its SDHC cards a boost this year, and the company doesn't seem to be wasting any time bringing its CompactFlash offerings up to speed as well, today introducing a series of new 300x UDMA CompactFlash cards, as well as a pair of card readers to go along with 'em. Available in 2, 4, and 8GB varities, the cards are said to be 125% faster than the company's current CompactFlash cards, delivering a sustained write time of 45MB per second. To hit that top speed, however, you'll need to use them with a UDMA-enabled device, which are currently a rare breed, although Lexar says it expects "several" UDMA-enabled digital cameras to be announced later this year. In addition those mystery cameras, you'll also be able to get the most out of the cards using one of the two UDMA card readers Lexar's set to release this spring, available in your choice of FireWire or USB 2.0 models for $80 and $50 respectively. The cards themselves should also be released about the same time, although Lexar doesn't seem willing to spill the details on how much they're gonna cost just yet.
