Samsung Begins Mass Production Of Industry First 512GB Embedded Storage

Share

Even though Samsung is most well known for its flagship phones, it has a massive component business as well. Since then, we've seen multiple smartphone OEMs adopt UFS.

In one of the most interesting developments, Samsung has reportedly kicked off the mass production of 512GB eUFS storage modules for mobile phones. After Samsung announced its Exynos 9810, which would no doubt be found running in the upcoming flagship, the company is back with another announcement, which suggests that the smartphone could feature tons of internal storage.

Samsung expects that this storage will come in handy for our mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, and is boasting "outstanding performance".

LMR Partners LLP Reduces Position in Marathon Petroleum Corporation (NYSE:MPC)
The investor is now holding $37.87 million shares due in part to a decrease of 1.39 million new shares in their portfolio. The stock of Marathon Petroleum Corporation (NYSE:MPC) earned "Buy" rating by RBC Capital Markets on Thursday, June 1.

Samsung's 512GB eUFS solution utilizes eight 64-layer 512-gigabit (Gb) V-NAND flash memory chips and a controller chip, all stacked together. The company says that's about a tenfold increase over a 64GB eUFS, which lets users store about 13 of the equivalently sized videos.

When will the first devices packing Samsung's 512GB eUFS storage launch? In addition, the 512GB eUFS' controller chip speeds up the mapping process for converting logical block addresses to those of physical blocks.

The new solution will provide a huge boost for storage on flagship phones, as well as another product for the strong performing division of Samsung to continue growth. 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.

Vandals again attack Lionel Messi statue in Argentina
It has attracted vandals and thieves before, such as in January of this year, when the Messi statue was cut in half at the waist. A search is still on to find the culprits of the act of vandalism, with a motive for the actions still not known.

Speed's sufficient for most application: Samsung's promised "sequential read and writes reaching up to 860 megabytes per second (MB/s) and 255MB/s respectively" and random data access speeds of 42,000 IOPS when reading and 40,000 IOPS when writing. This effectively doubles the density of Samsung's previous 48-layer V-NAND 256GB eUFS solution, offering twice as much storage in the same amount of space. Compare that to the 100 IOPS that conventional MicroSD cards read and you have about a 400x improvement in performance.

Another possible market is the imminent Microsoft/Qualcomm Windows-10-on-ARM laptops, which The Register understands will all-but-expect an LTE connection but will not be made worse by 512GB of power-sipping storage.
