The company has started mass producing the embedded UFS 3.0 chip.

According to the company, the new storage solution's read speeds are 20 times faster than a typical microSD card and are even four times faster than a SATA solid state drive. Theoretically, a user will be able to transfer a Full HD movie to a PC from a phone equipped with the new UFS chip in as fast as three seconds. Samsung also expects those speeds to be able to help provide a seamless user experience in "future smartphones with ultra-large high-resolution screens."
:eek:

I wonder how much these would cost to make? SD cards are pretty cheap these days, but they are soooooo slow. I'd really like to be able to use a faster flash card for things like Raspberry Pis and embedded servers (where SSDs aren't practical) - I wonder if this could be a cost effective answer :).

I honestly think SD cards are over priced, paying more than 1 dollar for each GB is expensive.
You must be shopping at the wrong stores

https://www.newegg.com/global/uk-en/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820175007&ignorebbr=1&source=region&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleUKAdwords-Global-PC&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleUKAdwords-Global-PC-_-pla-_-Memory+(Flash+Memory)-_-N82E16820175007&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI17mV6LPm4AIVSLYYCh1dVAFbEAkYAyABEgJfUvD_BwE

The one above works out to £0.22 ish for a GB. Shopping around you could get one much cheaper. :cool:
