In the new generation of mainframe, Sony's ps5 mainframe has a lot of efforts in SSD hard disk. The performance of 5.5gb/s is more than double the 2.4gb/s of Microsoft's Xbox series X (xsx). But Microsoft's xsx host computer pioneered a new type of mini SSD hard disk, which is manufactured by Seagate, and may become a killer.
In the xsx host of Microsoft, the nvme SSD hard disk is 1TB, which obviously can't meet everyone's needs, but also depends on the external hard disk.
On this issue, Microsoft has prepared two options for xsx. One is the traditional USB interface mobile hard disk, which supports the USB 3.2 standard. This speed should not be too high, so xsx has also developed a new extended SSD hard disk.
This hard disk is actually similar to the common U disk, or even smaller,It's just the size of a nail plate, it's customized by Seagate, and the capacity can reach 1TB.
As for performance, Microsoft hasn't announced the specific speed of this 1TB Mini SSD, butOfficials say it matches the internal nvme hard disk, which means the speed is also GB / s and the performance will be very strong.
Microsoft chose Seagate instead of Samsung, Toshiba and other large flash memory factories for this SSD, which also benefited Seagate's SSD business. Some analysts have calculated that the shipment volume of 1TB Mini SSD hard disk this year is about 1-2 million, with an average price of $100.
This is the only one,This extended SSD drive can contribute $100-200 million to Seagate's revenue, the total amount will not be very large, but you should know that Seagate's SSD business only had a total revenue of $771 million last year, and you have contributed 20% of the revenue growth to them.
