Samsung has announced the launch of the fastest memory manufacturing known in the mobile industry. The memories of the new UFS 3.1 memory standard are more efficient than the previous one. “With this new, faster mobile storage solution, smartphone users will no longer have to worry about those mobile storage issues that often appear with conventional memory cards,” said Cheol Choi, executive vice president of marketing and memory sales at Samsung Electronics, in the statement.
This new standard was introduced earlier this year. UFS 3.1 does not have more bandwidth than its predecessor. That is, the maximum will continue to be 1,200 MB/s per channel with a total of 2,400 MB/s. But other additions make flash storage systems more attractive to both the user and companies.
Samsung claims that these new memories have more than twice the speed of a SATA-based computer (540 MB/s). Ten times more than the rate of a microSD UHS-I card (90 MB / s). In other words, mobiles will have the speed of an ultra-slim laptop when storing large files such as 8K videos.
Compared to the previous standard, Samsung has calculated that the 512GB eUFS 3.1 system processes up to 60% faster. Offers 100,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS) for reads. And 70,000 IOPS for writes.
The company will offer in its following phones memories of this type, 512 GB, and other versions of 256 GB and 128 GB. He has not indicated which models will be the first to receive this novelty. But they explain that it will not be until the end of the year that we see a Samsung mobile with a card of these characteristics.
In addition to these improvements, UFS 3.1 memories include advances such as the Write Booster function to optimize the data in the flash memory. As well as the possibility of using Deep Sleep technology. A new state of low consumption.
