UFS And NVMe Go Toe-To-Toe In Mobile, Toshiba Launches 3D BiCS NVMe SSDs — News Tom’s Hardware

Toshiba announced that it will have its new BG series of products at the Flash Memory Summit 2016 next week. These new NVMe SSDs come in the smallest of form factors, such as small M.2 2230 (22x30mm) and BGA (Ball Grid Array) form factors.

UFS is the new, new thing for removable media. Samsung pre-announced a whole line of UFS memory cards to compete against the top of the line mini-SDXC memory cards. The speeds of UFS are so much faster than existing SDXC it’s very nearly as fast as a hard drive. If we can get fast removable memory like UFS with native SSD hard drive speeds, I would say even Hard drives are on their way out. The interfaces are just too slow.
