Lexar adds UDMA 7 support to company card reader

The Lexar Professional USB 3.0 Dual-Slot Reader came to us almost a year ago and while the device featured the super fast USB 3.0 interface and support for CompactFlash, CompactFlash UDMA, SD, SDHC, SDXC and SD UHS-I and even a cover used for protection against dust, the Lexar product lacked one thing – UDMA 7 support.

Now the US company is here to fix this issue with the latest edition of the Lexar Professional USB 3.0 Dual-Slot Reader, which now features full support for UDMA 7. The update comes as a response to the ever-increasing number of high speed CompactFlash memory cards that use UDMA 7. To make sure users distinguish the older version of the device from the newer Lexar will call the updated company product Professional USB 3.0 Dual-Slot Reader (UDMA 7). The novelty will sell for around 60 USD.

Lexar Professional USB 3.0 Dual-Slot Reader

Back in January 2012 Lexar released CompactFlash memory cards that run at 1000x speed. Such a card coupled with the new Professional USB 3.0 Dual-Slot Reader (UDMA 7) could reach 167 MB/sec of transfer speed.
