Samsung has begun manufacturing memory modules
that offer as much as 256 GB of storage. The new embedded memory chips use Universal Flash Storage 2.0. Samsung says UFS 2.0 can handle 45,000 input and 40,000 output operations per second, more than twice as fast as previous generations. The chip can move data at speeds up to 850Mbps, and write at speeds up to 260Mbps, which Samsung says is more than three times faster than high-performance micro SD cards. The 256 GB capacity is enough hold about 47 full HD movies. Samsung says the card is intended for mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablet, and laptops.
