Lexar 8GB Platinum II 60x SD Memory Card

Lexar has released its 8GB Platinum II 60x SD memory card that targets people who use devices that capture fast pictures, full motion video and is generally a winner with other SDHC-compatible devices. The speed is rated at 60x, which is roughly the equivalent of a minimum sustained write speed rate of 9MB/s. Since it is able to write data pretty quickly, you can use this in conjunction with more modern digital cameras that support the "burst mode" feature, since it is more than able to handle the vast amount of data that needs to be transferred over. No idea on the cost, but it ought to retail for a much higher premium compared to a standard SDHC memory card.
