UFS remains for Universal Flash Storage
Perused speeds five times that of the microSD cards
No word on evaluating and accessibility
In an offer to move the universe of memory cards to the following level, Korean gadgets mammoth Samsung has declared another sort of removable memory card in Universal Flash Storage (UFS) that will offer more than five times read speed and double the written work execution of today’s microSD cards, as per the organization.
These new cards will be in a perfect world suited towards high-determination proficient gadgets, for example, DSLRs, 3D VR cameras, active cams – think GoPro Hero4, rambles like the DJI Phantom arrangement – and 4K films and in addition 3D gaming. What’s more, to suit their requirements, UFS cards will be accessible away limits of 32, 64, 128 and 256GB.
Regarding execution, the original Samsung cards can be perused at 530MB/s, rather than 95MB/s offered by the best microSD cards accessible today. Samsung says the change carries it comparable to an strong average state drive (SSD). And permits clients to peruse a full-HD motion picture of 5GB in size in around 10 seconds where a microSD card would take 50 seconds.

For composing purposes, you get 170MB/s and consequently just about multiplying current top-end microSD cards that offer 90MB/s. Run of the mill microSD cards utilized by a great many people as a part of their cell phones offer 20MB/s compose speeds, which implies UFS cards are eight to nine times quicker.


Notice the diverse PIN association on back of the UFS card, which makes it incongruent with existing microSD spaces.
Samsung trusts this will help picture takers and radiographers the most, as the quicker read and compose paces will permit them to duplicate over mixed media documents and return to work in record time. In case you’re considering how the cards accomplish such gigantic numbers, that is on the grounds that UFS innovation has support for “concurrent perusing and composing”, which implies it can utilize more than one way not at all like microSD cards, which helps it duplicate the throughput.
While this may be the first run through UFS tech has discovered its way into removable cards, it is now being used as a part of its implanted structure, beginning with a year ago’s Galaxy S6. Whether Samsung will decide to swap out the S7’s microSD opening for UFS with one year from now’s Galaxy lead – since UFS utilizes an alternate PIN association – the truth will surface eventually.
Until further notice, there’s no word on estimating or accessibility of the new Samsung UFS cards.
