Samsung's New Superfast Chips Could Fuel Your Future iPhone

Samsung has just announced some super-fast new chips that could one day power an iPhone. The company claims the Pro Class 1500 line is the Usain Bolt of flash memory cards — four times speedier than predecessors and possibly the fastest chips around.

They can read data at 140MB per second, write at 50MB per second, and process at 1500 IOPS (inputs/outputs per second) for writing and 3500 for reading. They come in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB configurations. Despite their very public squabbling, Samsung still provides Apple with some very important components, including flash memory.

And the latest chips could be the innards that supercharge not your next iPhone, but your next next iPhone. [Samsung Tomorrow via Engadget]
