Samsung Starts Production of First 512GB UFS Package for Mobile Devices

Samsung Starts Production of First 512GB UFS Package for Mobile Devices

The new 512 GB eUFS storage solution uses 8 of Samsung's latest 64-layer 512-gigabit V-NAND chips and a controller chip, thus doubling the density of the previous 48-layer V-NAND-based 256 GB eUFS while using the same amount of space. Using UFS proved to be the right decision for Samsung, as it achieved much better performance than eMMC, which was predominantly used by Android phones at the time.

Reading into this statement, one might possibly construe that the eUFS solution might appear inside a variant of Samsung's next top-tier handset, the yet to be announced Galaxy S9.

IOC Bans Russia From 2018 Winter Olympics
The commission noted that the McLaren Report did not mention that the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) participated in the system. Mutko, who was sports minister at the time of the 2014 Sochi Olympics, remains head of the 2018 World Cup organizing committee.

Ltd., the world leader in advanced memory technology, today announced that it has begun mass production of the industry's first 512-gigabyte (GB) embedded Universal Flash Storage (eUFS) solution for use in next-generation mobile devices.

They 64-layer V-NAND chips should also do well in other embedded devices, which are expected to soon proliferate as 5G networks create possibilities for sophisticated devices in a great many locations.

Marlins Agree to Giancarlo Stanton Trade Framework With Cardinals, Giants
Stanton could ask that the opt-out be moved to a different point in the contract, as a condition for waiving his no-trade clause. Time and time again it has been reported that Giancarlo Stanton's top choice for his next team is the Los Angeles Dodgers .

With 512GB of storage, Samsung says you'll be able to store around 130 4K videos (3840 x 2160) that are each 10-minutes long on a smartphone. Despite offering twice the storage, it's still the same size as the 48-layer V-NAND-based 256GB eUFS Samsung launched in February a year ago. The company says that's about a tenfold increase over a 64GB eUFS, which lets users store about 13 of the equivalently sized videos. Also, the 512GB eUFS' controller chip is said to "speed up the mapping process for converting logical block addresses to those of physical blocks". The 512 GB chip stacks eight of the aforementioned NAND dies and is speced for up to 860 MB/s sequential read speeds as well as up to 255 MB/s sequential write speeds, which is in line with the company's 256 GB eUFS device launched in 2016.

On the performance side of things, the 512GB chip has read speeds that max out at 860MB/s and write speeds of 255MB/s. That translates to being able to transfer a 5GB Full HD video clip to an SSD in about six seconds, which is about eight times faster than a typical microSD card. Compare that to the 100 IOPS that conventional MicroSD cards read and you have about a 400x improvement in performance.
