Samsung might be experiencing its fair share of legal woes at the moment against Apple at the courthouse, but that does not mean that the rest of the world would stop for the South Korean consumer electronics giant. No sir, it is said that Samsung has started to begin volume production of what they claim to be the fastest embedded NAND storage in the world, targeting use in a plethora of modern day gadgets include smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices. These will come in three different capacities – we are looking at 16GB, 32GB and 64GB densities.
Known as the new Samsung Embedded Multimedia Card (eMMC) Pro Class 1500, it is said to offer the industry’s fastest speeds where an embedded memory device is concerned, being able to read data sequentially at up to 140 MB/s (megabytes per second) and writing it at up to 50 MB/s. When it comes to random reading and writing, it will be able to process up to 3500/1500 IOPS (inputs and outputs per second) – and for comparison’s sake, that is four times the speed of previous eMMC solutions, now how about that for being the proverbial Speedy Gonzales? It would take some time before you see the new Samsung Embedded Multimedia Card (eMMC) Pro Class 1500 arrive in future gizmos. [Press Release]
