Samsung UFS 4.0, the OEM's next-gen storage module for mobile devices, is officially in mass production
Samsung Semiconductor has chosen the 2022 Flash Memory Summit, held in the Santa Clara Convention Center in California this year, as its stage to set its latest products out, some of which are touted as industry-leading. They include the PM1743 and PM1653 SSDs, the industry's first of their kinds to support PCIe 5.0 and 24G SAS (an interface rated for up to 22.5Gb/s single-lane bandwidths) respectively.
Those new enterprise-grade drive options are now in mass production - as is Samsung's latest UFS 4.0 flash storage modules for next-gen mobile devices. Accordingly, they may form the basis of the next big internal spec buzzword thrown around at the launch of products such as the Galaxy S23 Ultra (or its successors, at the latest.
Samsung has also indicated that it is just about ready to support next-gen server-rig demands with Petabyte Storage, as well as those of cutting-edge machine learning and AI with "Memory-semantic" SSDs: drives rated to integrate CXL to "combine the benefits of storage and DRAM memory" with new features such as a built-in cache for the latter.
Then again, the OEM did not announce precise release data for any of these new component breakthroughs as part of its Summit showcase.
