It seems that speed wars are moving to replace capacity-focused sparring in the CompactFlash market: coming on the heels of Fujifilm's announcement of the world's fastest CF card (with 310x transfer speeds), A-DATA has deposed the previous record holder in short succession with 350x CFs.

A-DATA's Turbo Series 350x CF cards provide read and write speeds of 52MB/s and 47MB/s, respectively.

Available in 8GB and 16GB configurations, the new cards are aimed squarely at photographers and videographers needing high-capacity, high-transfer-rate cards for continuous shooting with the current generation of memory hungry professional equipment, according to the manufacturer.

The announcement from A-DATA doesn't provide details on pricing or availability, but some studied speculation suggests that the 16GB card will likely hit in the $200 to $250 range.
