Although the main flagships and got microSD card in this year, but Samsung continues to develop in the area of internal memory. Today the company announced that it begins mass production of the first in the flash memory industry UFS 2.0 to 256 GB.
Samsung began the transition to co UFS eMMC standard, even with last year’s flagships, as the new standard allows for much higher data rates.
The new chip processes up to 45 input and 40 000 000 O operations, which is two times faster than the 19 000/14 000 operations in the previous generation UFS.
Samsung also claims that their new chip uses two bands to transmit data at speeds of up to 850MB / s, making it almost twice as fast as SATA SSD, used in PCs. Sequential write speed is also quite impressive and reaches 260MB / s.
Samsung may boast that it is about three times faster than a high performance memory cards microSD, and twice as fast as last year’s chip with 128 GB.
Although we may not need such high speeds for everyday tasks, the Samsung plans to provide the new chips to help consumers take advantage of the seamless video playback 4K Ultra HD video and faster data transfer rates.
