Lexar posts UDMA 7 firmware update for USB 3.0 Dual-Slot Reader  
Monday, February 27, 2012 | by Rob Galbraith
Lexar has posted a firmware update and update utility for its Professional USB 3.0 Dual-Slot Reader. The new firmware, v0554, adds support for the UDMA Mode 7 data timing protocol used by the company's Professional 1000X CompactFlash series to achieve the fastest possible card-to-computer transfer speeds.

UDMA 7: Lexar's firmware update utility for the USB 3.0 Dual-Slot Reader

The firmware itself is bundled within the utility to install it, and as of this writing only the Windows version is available for download. The Mac version is to follow within two weeks, says Pachi Chen-Wong, senior product marketing manager for Lexar.

The Windows utility is compatible with Windows 7, Vista and XP.

The 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities of Lexar 1000X CompactFlash are arriving at retailers now. Last month, we reviewed the 32GB capacity of the Lexar 1000X and found it be the fastest CompactFlash card we'd ever tested.
