Exascend has announced a new 1TB CFexpress Type B memory card.
This card was made specifically with the RED V-Raptor in mind and it has been certified by RED.

There actually aren’t that many options available when it comes to CFexpress Type B cards that have a 1TB capacity.
- 1TB Storage Capacity

- Max Write Speed: 1600 MB/s
- Supports Raw 8K Video

The card is suitable for capturing 8K RAW video, RAW photos, and continuous image bursts, the 1TB Exascend/Archon CFexpress 2.0 Type B Memory Card from Vaxis features maximum read speeds of up to 1700 MB/s and maximum write speeds of up to 1600 MB/s.
It has been built with protection against ESD and overloads, shock and vibration resistance, and is able to withstand temperatures extremes. Also featured is EDC and ECC data reliability.
Price & Availability
The Exascend Archon 1TB CFexpress 2.0 Type B Memory Card should be available shortly for $1,199 USD.
This price does make the card quite expensive compared to other 1TB options that are on the market, but if you are using a camera like the V-Raptor for important projects, then I would be using certified media.
