Industry-leading storage solution brand Lexar has announced a plethora of new products at Computex 2021. In case you don’t know, Lexar specializes in producing storage memory not only used by computers but also cameras, video recorders, and more. Let’s see what is in store for them this year around.
For a quick heads up, Lexar’s Professional CFexpress Type B GOLD Series card has been a staple choice for many industry professionals to capture high-quality image and footage in RAW 4K and 8K with a superior access speed of 1.75GB/s reads and 1.00GB/s writes and that’s here to stay. What’s interesting is the brand releasing a new SILVER series within the same memory card category for better accessibility and affordability for use cases that are more into the semi-professional and casual scene. Available in capacities of up to 256GB, the Professional CFexpress Type B SILVER Series is still fitted for professional image capture and rated for standard 4K video format. As for the access speed, it is slightly lower at 1.00GB/s reads and 600MB/s writes.
To keep up with content creator’s fully loaded storage equipment, Lexar’s Professional CFexpress USB 3.2 Gen2x2 Reader is capable of handle it all. Utilizing the latest and fastest USB protocol, offloading 8K videos with speeds of up to 1.70GB/s will crank productivity level to new highs while the small form factor will allow users to carry them in backpacks and storage boxes easily. Additionally, it comes with a 2-in-1 cable with USB-C to USB-C and USB-C to USB-A ports for multi-platform compatibility.
Need something even smaller transferring less demanding data? Then the new JumpDrive P30 USB 3.2 Gen 1 Flash Drive wants your attention here. With 450MB/s reads and writes speed up its sleeve, it already matches the top speed of conventional SATA-based SSD while securely stores your file with a 256-bit AES encryption algorithm. With capacities going as high as 1TB, portability and performance are the names of the game here.
For the computer-based storage devices, Lexar’s NM620 M.2 2280 NVMe SSD makes a return to the spotlight through the addition of a new 2TB model. To recap, it is a PCIe 3.0 drive with speeds of 3.30GB/s reads and 2.85GB/s writes that features LDPC (Low-Density Parity Check). Pretty standard for most casual use cases. On the other hand, the newly announced Professional NM800 M.2 2280 NVMe SSD takes the storage game to the maximum that utilizes PCIe 4.0 to achieve a maximum speed of 7.40GB/s reads and 5.80GB/s writes. It is made to target high-profile file access, editing, and moving use cases such as editing 8K videos.
