Lexar also announced a new set of 'Gold Series' CFexpress Type A cards. These will offer slower read and write speeds of 900MB/s and 700MB/s, respectively, but are also rated for VPG 400 performance.

Both the Diamond Series CFexpress Type B and Gold Series CFexpress Type A cards are currently under development, but Longsys says they should be available in the second half of this year in the US. No local pricing has been confirmed yet.

In Australia, Lexar is distributed by UCC Australia.
