Microsoft announced the detailed specifications of Xbox series X host (hereinafter referred to as xsx) tonight. The 7Nm 8-core customized Zen CPU, 12tflops rdna2 GPU are more powerful than ever, and 16GB 320bit gddr6 memory. On the storage system, xsx host also changes the HDD structure of the previous host, which actually consists of three layers of storage structure.
In terms of external storage, xsx host supports USB 3.2 hard disk expansion, not to mention the specific USB 3.2 2x2 or anything. It is estimated that there is no problem with all kinds of USB mobile hard disks, most of which is slow speed.
The most interesting thing is scalable storage, which is not external storage, but exactly matches the customized SSD hard disk. The advantage is that it can expand itself, and the limit is not so dead.
This hard disk is actually similar to the usual U disk, or even smaller, only the size of the nail cover, is customized by Seagate, the capacity can reach 1 TB..
Microsoft didn't publish the specific performance data of the expandable hard disk, but the specification table mentioned that it matches the internal SSD, so the performance will not be much worse. It should also be nvme specification. This interface is used to expand the integrated 1TB hard disk. After all, 1TB is not enough for many people.
There is also a lack of information about selling prices, and it is not known whether Microsoft will turn SSD extensible hard disk into a XSX limit. If too much is not conducive to mass production, the estimated price will be a little high.
