OCZ unveils flash memory cards with USB


— 11:35 AM on August 24, 2006

Flash card readers have become increasingly common, but not all computers have them. To get around this problem, OCZ has introduced some new SD flash cards with built-in USB plugs. Essentially a love child of USB keychain drives and SD flash cards, the OCZ SD Dual memory cards fit in standard SD-compatible devices and have a cap that can be removed to reveal a USB interface. The cards are launching with beefy 1GB and 2GB capacities, although their rated read speed is a somewhat lackluster 80X. The 80X rating translates to only 12MB/s; OCZ's other SD flash cards are rated for up to 150X, or 22.5MB/s. OCZ hasn't revealed pricing for the new SD Dual cards.
