Samsung Electronics has announced that it is now mass producing 128GB ultra-fast embedded memory based on the Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 2.0 standard for smartphones.

UFS memory utilizes "Command Queue," a technology that accelerates the speed of command execution in SSDs through a serial interface, significantly increasing data processing speeds compared to the 8-bit parallel-interface-based eMMC standard, Samsung indicated. Its new UFS embedded memory conducts 19,000 IOPS for random reading, which is 2.7 times faster than eMMC 5.0.

Samsung's UFS memory also delivers a sequential read and write performance boost up to SSD levels, in addition to a 50% decrease in energy consumption. In addition, the random read speed is 12 times faster than that of a typical high-speed memory card (which runs at 1,500 IOPS).
