Posted by at 4:56 pm on May 17, 2011

Sony Europe has announced the PRO-HG Duo HX, a high speed flash memory stick. The company claims that the stick can achieve transfer speeds of up to 50MB/s, making it 1.6x faster than its current memory stick products and faster than any commercially available UHS-I SD card. Available later this month in 8GB to 32GB models, pricing will be the same as current memory stick counterparts.

Enabling the higher performance is a new HX Engine flash memory controller that the company has developed. The 50MBps transfer rate can be achieve when used in conjunction with Sony brand cameras and devices. Sony understandably didn’t provide performance comparisons with other manufacturers’ devices.

Sony is also offering free File Rescue recovery software and x-Pict Story slideshow software to registered Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX owners.

The Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX comes with a ten-year warranty. Pricing for 8, 16 and 32 GB versions is expected to reach the equivalents of $40, $80, and $130 respectively in Europe. Sony has not indicated when the cards will be available in the US or Canada.
