Samsung's Universal Flash Storage Cards Reach 256 GB

Samsung Electronics introduced a line of removable memory cards based on the JEDEC Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 1.0 Card Extension Standard.

The cards are designed for high-resolution mobile shooting devices such as DSLRs, 3D VR cameras, action cams and drones. Storage capacities include 256, 128, 64 and 32 gigabyte (GB).


Samsung’s new 256GB UFS removable memory card ─ simply referred to as the UFS card - provides more than five times faster sequential read performance compared to that of a typical microSD card, reading sequentially at 530 megabytes per second (MB/s) which is similar to the sequential read speed of the most widely used SATA SSDs. With this UFS card, consumers have the ability to read a 5GB, Full-HD movie in approximately 10 seconds, compared to a typical UHS-1 microSD card, which would take over 50 seconds with 95MB/s of sequential reading speed. Also, at a random read rate of 40,000 IOPS, the 256GB card delivers more than 20 times higher random read performance compared to a typical microSD, which offers approximately 1,800 IOPS.

When it comes to writing, the new 256GB UFS card processes 35,000 random IOPS, which is 350 times higher than the 100 IOPS of a typical microSD card, and attains a 170MB/s sequential write speed, almost doubling the top-end microSD card speed.
