Default Samsung’s flash memory is now four times faster

Samsung Electronics is looking to speed up the flash memory found on smartphones and tablets with its new Samsung Embedded Multimedia Card (eMMC) Pro Class 1500 NAND chips. This ultra-fast embedded memory is four times faster than existing eMMC solutions, which will result in much better performance on mobile devices.

This flash memory can read at a speed of 140MB/s (3,500 inputs per second) and write at a speed of 50MB/s (1,500 outputs per second). The chips won’t be sold directly to consumers, but manufacturers like Samsung, Apple, and others will be able to include them in new devices in the 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB variety.

I, for one, am very excited to have faster memory in upcoming smartphones and tablets, as it will dramatically speed up everyday tasks. Now, if only we could get every manufacturer to include the 64GB flash memory chip in high-end devices… right?
