Sony claims that this memory stick has the speed limit of 50MB/ sec transfer rates which is way too high than some of the quickest memory sticks out there in the market.

This can even speed up the transfer rates inside the camcorder and provide better experience for the shooter. Sony has announced that the top speed of this new memory card is 1.6 times faster than the earlier Memory Stick PRO HG Duo HX cards.

Sony is sure that this memory stick will be a definite hit with all the photographers who love to shoot their pictures on their DSLR and SLT digital cameras.

While transferring the same data from card to normal desktop computer or laptop the card was able to transfer 32GB movie in just 11 minutes which is twice as fast as any other SDHC cards.
