tedleaf, 31 Jan 2018Another totaly worthless standards "upgrade" ,,the one place it would realy make a difference ... moreWorthless, why? The internal storage is not more faster and secure for save files than micro sd cards? If the UFS 3.0 is twice faster than the 2.1, why that claim about the micro sd cards?
Kangal, 31 Jan 2018eMMC 4.5 is competing with HDD speeds.
Whereas eMMC 5.2/UFS 1.0 is competing with slow TLC SA... moreTop speeds doesnt really matter anymore as those are sequential.
The RANDOM speeds on the other hand do, but these arent listed anywere...
And more important, these are theoretycal numbers. On a phone they are way less impressive, like 1/3 of them.
Another totaly worthless standards "upgrade" ,,the one place it would realy make a difference is in msd card use,but as pointed out in article,years after 2.1 was announced,we still cannot buy a card that is 2.1 capable,so we should only have to wait about ten years+ for one that is 3.0 capable,by which time everything will be using 3d stacked memory anyway and mobile devices will routinely have terrabyte storage capacoty built in and ram will be 64gb for an enyey level device,state of the art kit will run 256gb of ram,just because it can be done and people will pay for it,even thpugh there will be no good technical reason for running such massive amounts of ram,not unless we ate finaly going to get true pocket pc's that run full desktop software that can actualy use such amounts of ram.
vivo reckon to have 10gb ram in a phone very soon,if reports are correct,so thats all of andriod running in ram,with a couple left over for apps etc to use,when we hit 16gb,thats about the sweet spot for now,whole of andriod in ram,4-6gb for apps to use,2 for headroom..
Kyo, 31 Jan 2018Good overall except that we will get to use this after 2-3 years.Might see it on the oneplus 7
eMMC 4.5 is competing with HDD speeds.
Whereas eMMC 5.2/UFS 1.0 is competing with slow TLC SATA SSD's.
And the huge leap to UFS 2.1 is competing with NVMe SSD's.
...but this, this is on another level.
23.2Gbps translates to roughly 2900MB/s.
That's insane. Even the outrageously overpriced Intel's PCIe connected SSD (the Optane) hits its limit around 2,500MB/s. So we're effectively talking about speeds approaching (DDR2) RAM levels. If it was another fold faster it could be used PageFile as temporary RAM without much performance penalty to the system. But we're still around x100,000 slow/below the speed limit of the fastest L1 Cache speeds.
