It beats the fastest CF cards.

Toshiba Corporation today announced that it will launch a new series of SD memory cards offering the world's fastest data write speed. The latest edition to its line-up of EXCERIA memory cards designed to offer users of high-end digital cameras an excellent experience, the EXCERIA PRO and EXCERIA cards will be launched in major markets worldwide, starting with Japan in October. EXCERIA series will write at 240 MB/sec (!)EXCERIA cards compliant with UHS-II will be available in two series. The EXCERIA PRO series will offer photographers a data write speed of 240 MB/sec the world's fastest, while the EXCERIA series will write at 120 MB/sec. They will allow digital camera users to shoot still images continuously at high speed.
The cards are the first in the EXCERIA line-up to integrate a newly developed controller compliant with UHS-II the ultra high speed serial bus interface defined in SD Memory Card Standard Ver. 4.10, and they achieve significantly higher data transfer speeds than earlier UHS-I compliant cards.


While digital cameras have made huge strides in image quality and versatility, users have long wanted to see improvements in data transfer rates and write times, so as to be able to takes bursts of photographs in quick succession. This demand has grown increasingly strong as high performance digital single-lens reflex cameras and mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras have gained popularity and moved into the mainstream. Further advances in higher resolution image recording (including 4K2K video), will also fuel demand for transfers of data-rich images at high speed.

Just for the sake of curiosity, what cameras or camcorders are in common use that can use cards like these?

I wonder what the actual write speed will be. It always seems to be far less than what is advertised and of course many of the cameras are bottlenecked so that they are limited. For instance, my T2i's top speed is about 20MB/s write speed, because it's bottlenecked and can't take advantage of the full speed that my Sandisk Pro Extreme II 45MB/s card can do. I'd be curious to know which video cameras or DSLR for video can actually take advantage of these fast cards.

There are none that need 240MB/s write today but with 4K cameras coming they will need more than what is available today and the Toshiba cards will not be available until the end of the year.

Any decent camcorder records at a rate at least 100,000 higher than 240 mb/s.
