Kingston launches 2GB SD memory card
Kingston Technology Company, Inc. has announced a new 2GB capacity Secure Digital (SD) card. With 120X transfer rates, Kingston SD Ultimate cards offer significant performance benefits over current Standard and Elite Pro lines of SD cards from the same manufacturer.

The company says the greater storage capacity of the 2GB SD Ultimate card meets the demands of professional digital photographers.

"Kingston's SD Ultimate line is designed to provide pro users and serious digital enthusiasts a performance edge in optimizing their high-end digital equipment -- whether it's a digital camera, MP3 player or PDA," said Mike Kuppinger, digital media manager, Kingston. "Our new 2-GB SD Ultimate cards build on that advantage by offering greater capacity to manage larger files," added Kuppinger.

Similar to CD-ROM drives, many devices are currently sold with an 'X' speed rating to give users a performance indicator of how fast a card can transfer (read and/or write) images. Kingston X-speed ratings are based on 'write' speed, and X-speed performance is a function of MegaBytes per second (MB/sec) of write speed. Higher X-speed ratings signify faster cards.

In this case the specifications promise a 21 MB/sec. read rate and 18 MB/sec. write rate.

Kingston's SD Ultimate cards were first products to ship in its new Ultimate family of digital media. CompactFlash Ultimate cards will be next to join the Ultimate line. The new 2GB SD Ultimate card will have an suggested price of US$219.00.
