Samsung Begins Mass Production Of Industry First 512GB Embedded Storage

Now, the electronics giant has disclosed that it has begun production of 512GB UFS-based embedded storage chips designed "for use in next-generation mobile devices".

On a side note, Samsung also announced plans to increase production of its 64-layer 512 Gb V-NAND chips as well as 256 Gb V-NAND chips to meet growing demand for mobile storage, SSDs and other products.

The new eUFS can also read 42,000 IOPS and write 40,000 IOPS for random operations, which is about 400 times faster than a microSD card. The news came just days after the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge were unveiled both of which incorporated UFS 2.0 onboard storage in either 32GB or 64GB capacities.

"The new Samsung 512GB eUFS provides the best embedded storage solution for next-generation premium smartphones by overcoming potential limitations in system performance that can occur with the use of micro SD cards", said Jaesoo Han, executive vice president of Memory Sales and Marketing at Samsung Electronics. Even though the 512GB eUFS solution contains 2x the number of cells as compared to a 256GB eUFS, Samsung states that the "inevitable increase in energy consumed" will be minimized by the 64-layer 512-gigabit V-NAND's "advanced circuit design" and new power management technology in the controller.

Given the timing of the announcement, it is only a matter of time before manufacturers adopt the 512GB eUFS solution into their products especially in mobile devices.

PlayStation Stores Leak The God Of War Release Date
Still, we won't have absolute certainty on this until Sony comes right out and says it, so we'll have to wait and see. It looks a lot more like the God of War I want to play now, so I'm hoping this date turns out to be accurate.

According to Samsung, its new 512GB eUFS offering features eight 64-layer 512Gb V-NAND chip and a controller chip that stacked together in one single solution.

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.

Performance-wise, you can expect up to 860MB/s and 255MB/s sequential read and write speeds, respectively.

Do you think the Galaxy S9 will be able to tout 512GB of internal storage? However, if the company starts using this storage module, we may be facing the prospects of losing the microSD card slot. The top candidate right now is the Galaxy S9, which is expected to be Samsung's next flagship Android smartphone.
