Check-out the current Pretec Storage Cards at Shopping.comPretec, creator of the highest capacity CompactFlash card in the world (100GB) and the fastest CF card in the world (433X), continues its record breaking history in the field of speed and capacity by unveiling the extraordinary 666X CF card, the world's fastest CF card at CeBIT and at PMA.

Four times faster than a typical CF card, Pretec 666X CF's dazzling 100MB/s speed is the largest speed boost in CF history. 666X CF card is the newest member of Pretec's family of innovative flash memory cards, consistently first to market in high speed and capacity products; 233X and 333X CF cards were introduced by Pretec at Taipei in 2007, 64GB CF card started shipping in Sept. 2008, and 433X CF card were launched at Birmingham UK in Feb. 2009. Pretec 666X CF card will likely also be the last of the high speed CF card in the CompactFlash industry, since 100MB/s speed is approaching the theoretical maximum speed of CF specification, which is 133MB/s. CompactFlash Association (www.compactflash.org) has released the new generation of the CF specification, CFast™, which breaks the speed limit from 133MB/s of the Parallel ATA (PATA) standard to 3Gb/s (375MB/s) Serial ATA (SATA II) architecture while keep the small and popular original CF mechanical form factor. Pretec has announced the world's 1st CFast™ since CES 2009 in Las Vegas, also demonstrated here in CeBIT and PMA; which will continue to be the speed and capacity leader (up to 6Gb/s) in small form factor memory card for the years to come.

With metal housing and ruggedized construction, Pretec 666X CF card provides extensive ruggedness making the card resistant to impact & shock – at least 10 times more durable than a typical CF card, and enables photographers to make the best use of rapid capture of high resolution pictures in the studio, streets or elsewhere with confidence and piece of mind even under the most severe conditions
