Best cards for mini

Just a little confused as to which Compact Flash cards will work with the new mini. How fast do the cards need to be? If ProRes Lt. is a 102 mbps feed than how can a Sandisk Extreme Pro keep up if it only has a 90 mbps capability? This would make it seem that most of the ProRes catagories would not record properly. What am I missing? Thanks.

Your Mbs and your MBs. ProResLT is 100ish Megabits/sec (small b). UDMA 6 cards are rated for 90 MegaBytes/sec (big b).

So ProResLT = 100mb/sec (or 12ish MB/sec), UDMA 6 = 90 MB/sec (or 720ish mb/sec). Plenty of headroom.
