Power Core Controller That Optimizes Card Endurance and
Boosts Read/Write Speed to up to 90MB/s

SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK), the global leader in flash memory cards, introduced a new line of SanDisk Extreme® Pro™ CompactFlash® memory cards, setting a new standard for fast, reliable, high-capacity memory cards designed for professional photographers. SanDisk Extreme Pro CompactFlash cards feature a new SanDisk® Power Core Controller™, an advanced memory controller that enables lightning-fast read and write speeds of up to 90MB/s1, doubling the performance from previous SanDisk high-end camera memory cards. The cards are shipping worldwide now with capacities ranging from 16 gigabytes (GB)2 to 64GB.

"The new SanDisk Extreme Pro CompactFlash line is the direct result of SanDisk's passion, commitment, and break-through engineering innovation to provide best-in-class flash memory cards for professional photography," said Eric Bone, vice president, retail product marketing, SanDisk. "The SanDisk Power Core Controller delivers unmatched write speed and reliability, providing photographers with a spectacular combination of performance, capacity and peace of mind that images are safely stored."

SanDisk Extreme Pro CompactFlash cards are fully compatible with any camera, card reader or other device that supports CompactFlash cards. Renowned for their world-class durability, the cards can withstand accidental drops of up to nine feet, carry a lifetime limited warranty and guarantee operation at extended temperatures ranging from minus 13 F (minus 25 C) to 185 F (85 C) and added protection against moisture and humidity. Faster read and write speeds mean more opportunities to capture the winning shot and less time spent offloading gigabytes of images afterwards. Large storage capacity enables photographers to capture RAW images and high-definition video clips in a single session without running out of space.
“We are currently working on the retail dispatch program of the new SanDisk Extreme Pro CompactFlash for the Middle East region. We should achieve visibility in retails shops in a matter of a few weeks” said Tareq Husseini, sales director Middle East and Africa, SanDisk.

SanDisk is also introducing new SanDisk Extreme CompactFlash cards at increased performance of previous SanDisk Extreme III CompactFlash cards. The new SanDisk Extreme and SanDisk Extreme Pro cards represent the step beyond SanDisk Extreme III and SanDisk Extreme IV cards, respectively.
