Sony has quietly launched a new series of their memory cards with a significant performance boost. The new G Series is compliant with both PCI Express Gen.2 and USB 3.0 interfaces for the XQD 2 Format. The new G-Series memory cards can deliver impressive speeds up to 400 MB/s reads and 350 MB/s writes.
Sony’s new G-Series memory cards provide efficient data writing and dependable recording of 4K video while avoiding speed degradation. The larger capacity 128GB model expands the line-up allowing up to 40 minutes of 4K XAVC Intra 422 60p (600Mbps) recording with 4K video cameras.
The G Series comes bundled with a dedicated USB 3.0 adapter so you can transfer all those RAW images and data-intensive 4K video files to your workstation at the same speeds, and get started with the those editing jobs.
These new memory cards won’t come cheap. The 32GB model will set you back $163.50, the 64GB model will cost you $363.95 while the largest 128GB card will cost a staggering $799.95. The included USB 3.0 adapter has a retail value of $38, so that can be seen as a value boost. The new Sony XQD cards will start shipping on November 3rd.
