Expensive memory card for Xbox Series X
We already know that Microsoft's Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S game consoles will sell for $ 499 and $ 299, respectively. The Xbox Series X will receive a 1 TB solid-state drive, of which about 800 GB will be available to users. The Xbox Series S has a 512 GB solid-state drive. Microsoft claims that games on the Xbox Series S should take up to 30% less space than on the older console.

In order to expand the space available for installing and running next-generation games, users will be offered a 1 TB Seagate game drive. It was previously available for pre - order in the US for $ 220. Yesterday it became known that in Russia it is offered for 19,279 rubles, or about $ 245. But Xbox fans were least lucky in China, where an external solid-state drive for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S was priced at $ 250. It also finally became known that this expansion card has 920 GB of free space. It is clear that there is more space on external drives with the same declared volume, since the operating system takes up a lot of space on the internal SSD.

Information from the official website of Seagate confirms that this is a PCIe Gen4x2 NVMe solid-state drive with a maximum theoretical speed of 4 GB/s. This is still the only accessory that will allow players to get the same excellent performance as the internal drive.

According to the latest information, games on the Xbox Series X began to load three to four times faster. In particular, on the Xbox One, the Control game loads in 30-38 seconds, on the Xbox Series X — in just 9-10 seconds, and in the case of Final Fantasy XV, the difference is almost sixfold.

Another interesting feature is the quick resumption of the game. It allows you to switch between multiple games at the same time each remains in memory. Switching takes 5-10 seconds.
