Samsung UFS – world’s fastest flash cards

By

Samsung has bought UFS (Universal Flash Storage) – some call it ultra-fast storage – to its memory card line-up, with sizes ranging up to 256GB.

These are the world’s first cards to use JEDEC Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 1.0 Card Extension Standard, for use in high-resolution mobile shooting devices such as DSLRs, 3D VR cameras, action cams and drones. Storage capacities include 32, 64, 128 and 256GB.

Jung-bae Lee, senior vice-president, memory product planning and application engineering, Samsung Electronics, said “Our new 256GB UFS card will provide an ideal user experience for digitally-minded consumers and lead the industry in establishing the most competitive memory card solution.

"By launching our new high-capacity, high-performance UFS card line-up, we are changing the growth paradigm of the memory card market to prioritise performance and user convenience above all.”

UFS 1.0 is more than five times faster in sequential read than current cards, achieving around 530Mbps – similar to SATA-based SSD. Write speeds are 350 times faster and can reach 170MB/s sequential writes. Unfortunately, the cards are not backwardly compatible and will require new UFS micro-SD slots.
