Wow a 16GB of Compact Flash Card! Here's the offical chatter from SanDisk regarding the Extreme III series performance, "SanDisk Extreme III cards use SanDisk-developed ESP (Enhanced Super-Parallel Processing) technology that combines advanced NAND flash memory chips and controller designs, 32-bit RISC processing and leading edge algorithms for an architecture that streamlines every aspect of read and write data transfer operations. In addition, SanDisk works closely with major camera manufacturers to ensure speed and compatibility. The ESP architecture effectively removes the card as the bottleneck in data storage applications." Street price, for the 16GB card, is expected to be around $850. For more info click here.
