This new line features the same industry-leading quality as the ProGrade current 4th generation 512GB, 1TB, and 2TB capacity Gold line of cards, and leverages PCIe Gen 4 interconnect with NVMe 1.4c host controller interface with the addition of a VPG400 rating. The ProGrade Digital CFexpress Iridium cards are fully compliant with the CFexpress 4.0 specification, and provide a read speed of up to 3,550MB/s, burst write speed of up to 3,000MB/s, and sustained write speeds of up to 850MB/s and 1,500MB/s respectively – ideally suited for the highest-resolution cinema-grade video capture applications. The VPG400 rating of the CFexpress Type B Iridium memory cards makes them compatible with cinema cameras like the Sony Burano.

“The introduction of our new CFexpress Type B Iridium line of memory cards – with capacities of 400GB, 800GB, and 1600GB – provide high-capacity storage levels at a competitive price to meet the needs of high-performance still and video shooters,” said Josh Brewer, Product Manager of ProGrade Digital. “We’ve designed our new CFexpress 4.0 Iridium Type B family to uniquely meet the needs of video cameras such as the recently released Sony Burano – that requires VPG 400 capability – to assure reliable video capture in every capture mode.” The CFexpress Type B Iridium cards will start shipping this quarter.
