SanDisk Introduces RapidGX, Memory Stick Pro Duo Gaming Card For Sony PSP
SanDisk introduced RapidGX, a high-performance Memory Stick PRO Duo Game card intended for the Sony PSP (PlayStation Portable) console. The announcement was made at E3 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
The SanDisk RapidGX card comes with software that allows PSP owners to convert and transfer a host of multimedia files from a personal computer to a PSP, through a simple drag-and-drop interface. It also comes with SanDisk’s new MicroMate high-speed Memory Stick PRO Duo card reader, which is optimized for the RapidGX to achieve maximum transfer speeds.
The SanDisk RapidGX card initially will be sold in a single capacity of 1GB for a suggested retail price of $84.99. The PSP software and the reader, available for a limited time, represent a $40 value-add over the price of the individual components included in the package. Shipping to retailers is expected in early summer.
With the MicroMate reader, a PSP user can transfer data at read/write speeds of up to 15MB/s. The reader contains a slot for the card and a USB connector that allows it to be plugged into a PC’s USB port. Since there is no accessible on-board memory in the PSP, all content must be stored on removable Memory Stick PRO Duo cards.
