Samsung intros world’s first UFS memory cards

Samsung has had another first in the digital world – the Korean company has unveiled the industry’s first removable memory cards that meet the JEDEC Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 1.0 card extension standard for use in high-resolution mobile shooting devices such as DSLR cameras, 3D VR cameras, drones and others. The new UFS cards are available in capacities of 32 GB, 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB and in addition to this they come with great performance.

“Our new 256 GB UFS card will provide an ideal user experience for digitally-minded consumers and lead the industry in establishing the most competitive memory card solution,” said Jung-bae Lee, senior vice president, Memory Product Planning & Application Engineering, Samsung Electronics “By launching our new high-capacity, high-performance UFS card line-up, we are changing the growth paradigm of the memory card market to prioritize performance and user convenience above all.”

The 256 GB model steals the show with its large capacity and high speed. The card can read sequentially at 530 MB/sec, which is comparable to a modern SSD and features a random read rate of 40 000 IOPS, which is about 20 times faster than a regular microSD memory card. When writing the 256 GB model writes data at 170 MB/sec, which is almost double the speed of high-end microSD memory cards and reaches 35 000 random IOPS, which is 350 times faster than a regular microSD memory card. Now users can read a 5 GB Full HD movie in about 10 seconds and record more than 1 GB of data in just a few seconds time.

There’s no information when these cards will be in stores and how much they will cost but we doubt Samsung will waste time in providing its customers with these new UFS memory cards.
