The Samsung eMMC 5.0 memory modules have hit the production line and they are said to be the ‘world’s fastest’ embedded storage chips ( for 16GB, 32GB and 64GB densities ) as well as the first of their kind to be designed based on the said technology. Samsung’s new eMMC Pro memory boasts an interface speed of 400 MB/ sec, an almost threefold improvement over its current embedded memory.
The 32 and 64GB densities in particular boast random read and write speeds of 7,000 IOPS (inputs/outputs per second) and sequential read and write speeds of 250 MB/ sec and 90 MB/ sec respectively (That’s 10 times the sequential read/write speeds provided by class 10 external memory cards, the company noted). What do all of those numbers mean? Well, they should translate to much better performance when it comes to multitasking, browsing, file transfers, HD video capture, gaming and just general computing.
The Samsung eMMC 5.0 modules have been developed by leveraging the 64Gb 10nm class NAND flash technology and they measure 11.5mm x 13mm in dimensions. Additionally, the conglomerate has integrated its own NAND controller and firmware into the modules.
The 16GB, 32GB and 64GB eMMC 5.0 modules along with the latest 3GB LPDDR3 mobile DRAM and the new Exynos 5420 Octa SOC which packs Mali-T628 graphics, may well be scheduled to arrive through the Note 3 smartphone which is expected to debut on September 3.
