Samsung’s world-first UFS memory cards are blazing fast

“Samsung’s world-first UFS memory cards are blazing fast that looks like micro SD cards but aren’t.

Samsung is the first to announce a series of UFS (Universal Flash Storage) removable memory cards, with its 256GB flavor boasting an SSD-like sequential read speed of 530MB/s — that’s about half a gigabyte per second and almost five times faster than the top microSD cards these days. It can also do 170MB/s sequential writing, which is almost two to three times faster. More importantly, Samsung claims that its upcoming 256GB card is rated with a random read rate of 40,000 IOPS, which is 20 times higher than that of a typical microSD card; and likewise, it has a random write rate of 35,000 IOPS, which is a whopping 350 times higher.”

These new cards sound fantastic but won’t be cheap . It would be marvellous if these cards worked with the new Samsung Note 7!
