As consumer (and prosumer) devices continue to push the limit, so do the necessary accessories that go along with them. Remember when having a class 4 SD card was perfectly adequate? If you’re rocking high quality HD video and audio on a camcorder, you’ll want something faster. And it looks like Patriot has you covered.

For my Olympus E-PL1, I’m currently using a couple of Patriot LX Series Class 10 SDHC cards. Those offer a speed of about 10MB/sec. Going even faster is the newly announced Patriot LX Pro series. It’s still a Class 10 card, but it “obliterates current SDHC Class 10 performance classification” with a transfer speed of up to 20MB/sec. Yeah, that’s pretty pro.

You can expect the Patriot LX Pro SHDC cards to ship in 16GB and 32GB flavors soon. If you want more Patriot goodness, make sure you check out my piece on the Android-powered Box Office Alpine HD media player too.
