Angelbird has announced some new CFexpress cards in their range. The Angelbird AV PRO CFexpress Type B MK2 Edition cards support up to 12K and higher resolution RAW recording.

Y2 processor

The new CFexpress cards use the Angelbird Y2 processor to deliver sustained high-speed recording of high bit-rate video or photography. In addition, Angelbird says the cards offer stable and reliable speeds throughout the entire capacity of the card. This means you will get smooth, drop-free results as well as fast transfers of large files.

Angelbird’s largest capacity card

The Angelbird AV PRO CFexpress MK2 card is Angelbird’s largest capacity CFexpress Type B media, available in 1 TB, 2 TB and 4 TB sizes. It has a maximum read speed of 1785 MB/s and a write speed of 1550 MB/s. In addition, the card has a guaranteed minimum sustained speed of 1300 MB/s throughout its entire capacity. Angelbird also designed the card to protect itself against overheating and to operate at a reduced power draw.
