What is a CFexpress Memory Card?

The CompactFlash Association has introduced a new memory card format known as CFexpress. The standard uses a PCIe 3.0 interface with 1 to 4 lanes where 1 GB/s data can be provided per lane. So far, six companies have announced manufacturing CFexpress cards- Apacer, Delkin, Lexar, ProGrade Digital, SanDisk, and Sony. Similar to SD cards that are available in miniSD and microSD formats, CFexpress will also be available in three different sizes. According to the CFexpress 2.0 specification that was announced in late February 2019, CFexpress cards will be available as- Type A, Type B, and Type C. The “type A” cards with one lane are more compact while “type C” comes with four lanes, where 1 GB/s data can be provided per lane (up to 4 GB/s). Type B cards have 2 PCIe lanes and a maximum theoretical speed of 2,000MB/s. Most of the photographers are using Type B cards because these are identical to XQD memory cards and better suited for high-end digital cameras. This means that if your camera has the XQD slot feature, it will be compatible with CFexpress cards through a firmware update.

SanDisk is the first manufacturer to place CFexpress cards on sale. The first SanDisk Extreme Pro CFexpress cards are available in 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB, and the Type B cards offer read speeds of up to 1700MB/s and 1400MB/s write speeds. The company claims that these cards are fast enough to enable “low-latency, high-speed RAW 4K recording. Adoption of this new format has already begun as Canon Cinema EOS is the first camera to use CFexpress. Also, the Nikon D6 is expected to use CFexpress card slots.
