JEDEC, the global standards for the microelectronics industry, has announced the release of UFS 3.1 under the full name JESD220E that promise to increase device performance, reduce power consumption and potentially reduce the cost of storage devices for large volumes of data. The organization also announced HPB (Host Performance Booster) technology as an extension to the new standard under the full name JESD220-3.
The new standard UFS 3.1 improves memory performance compared to the previous UFS 3.0 standard that appeared in devices around mid-2019 with the Samsung Galaxy Fold and OnePlus 7 Pro. JEDEC post a blog, the version of the specification supports three new features such as Write Booster, Performance Throttling Notification and DeepSleep. Write Booster is a technology designed to increase write speeds using a cache called pseudo-SLC. Deep Sleep, a new power stage is capable of operating memory at low voltage regulator by other functions. Performance Throttling Notification has reduced performance due to overheating, which implies more stable operation. which playing game on your smartphone.
UFS 3.1 compatible drives will still offer theoretical bandwidths of up to 2.9 GB / s as 3.0 which enables to perform more efficiently and use lesser power. “The new features introduced with UFS 3.1 and UFS HPB will offer product designers greater flexibility in managing power consumption and enhancing device performance.” posted by Mian Quddus, Chairman of the JEDEC Board of Directors.
