Samsung Electronics announced the industry's first 1TB eUFS 2.1 (embedded Universal Flash Storage). The chip has already entered mass production so we can expect the next-generation premium smartphones to feature it and the Galaxy S10+ will likely to be the first one.
The new 1TB eUFS chip is just as big as the previous 512GB chip (11.5 x 13mm) while holding double the storage capacity by combining 16 stacked V-NAND flash memory layers and a newly developed controller. But Samsung was able to make substantial speed gains as well.
The new chip boasts sequential read speeds of up to 1000 MB/s and sequential write speed of 260 MB/s. For the record, a standard 2.5-inch SATA SSD caps at around 540 MB/s read speeds, so this is mighty impressive. Compared to the previous generation of 512GB storage, the 1TB chip's random read speeds have increased by 38%.
Here's a small table comparing different internal memory solutions and their performance:
|Memory||Sequential Read||Sequential Write||Random Read||Random Write|
|1TB eUFS 2.1||1000 MB/s||260 MB/s||58,000 IOPS||50,000 IOPS|
|512GB eUFS 2.1||860 MB/s||255 MB/s||42,000 IOPS||40.000 IOPS|
|256GB UFS Card||530 MB/s||170 MB/s||40,0000 IOPS||35.000 IOPS|
|256 eUFS 2.0||850 MB/s||260 MB/s||45,000 IOPS||40,000 IOPS|
|128GB eUFS 2.0||300 MB/s||150 MB/s||19,000 IOPS||14,000 IOPS|
Well if people can charge that much money for less than samsung are giving you then why not?? How much does a Mate porsche edition cost again?? Over 2 thousand right? Does it have 1tb internal storage? A fast better fingerprint sensor? 10 GB...
Well maybe but right here and right now paying 500 more bucks for 1TB disk space is ridiculous. My western Digital elements 2,5 inch 2TB HDD cost me 90 euros. Samsung ask 500 for a difference between 64GB and a 1TB thats ridiculous.
