UFS 2.0 vs UFS 2.1 vs UFS 3.0 vs UFS 3.1 | Difference between UFS 2.0 UFS 2.1 UFS 3.0 UFS 3.1

This page compares UFS 2.0 vs UFS 2.1 vs UFS 3.0 vs UFS 3.1 and mentions difference between UFS 2.0, UFS 2.1, UFS 3.0 and UFS 3.1 with respect to speed and IOP/sec.

What is UFS Storage ?

The UFS (Universal Flash Storage) is successor to existing eMMC standard used as memory in high end mobile phones from Samsung and OnePlus . UFS interface offers performance benefits like SATA used in PCs and low power consumption like eMMC. It is positioned to be replacement of eMMCs and SD cards.

UFS Storage

It acts as SSD of smartphone to provide better user experince and faster responses. UFS contains NAND flash memory and controller. UFS has serial interface with full duplex data transfer. It offers higher number of input/output operations per second as well as higher bandwidth compare to eMMC's 8 bit parallel interface.

UFS version 1.0 and 1.1 has been introduced in the year 2011 and 2012 respectively. Both the versions had support of 300 Mbps bandwidth per lane.

UFS cards are available in various sizes such as 32, 64, 128, 256, 512 GB. Following section mentions difference between UFS 2.0, UFS 2.1, UFS 3.0 and UFS 3.1 versions with respect to speed and Input/output operations per second (IOP/s).
