Memory company Kingston Technology has unveiled a new CompactFlash card that takes its product line out to a new capacity high.

The Kingston CF/8GB-S CompactFlash Elite Pro card offers a whopping eight gigabytes of storage space, and 45x transfer speeds. 'x' speed ratings derive from the days of early CD-ROM drives, where a single-speed drive had a transfer rate of 150KB / sec. - hence a 45x CF card should offer 6.75MB / sec. transfer rates.

The Kingston 8GB CompactFlash Elite Pro card has a lifetime warranty, and is priced at $399.99.
