The full specifications of Xbox Series X are revealed today, and we informed you about it in our previous story. Xbox Series X External SSD deserves special attention. This Tiny device made by Seagate has Xbox Logo on it which looks very beautiful. But how powerful is it?

Digital Foundry was invited by Microsoft at their Bellevue, WA head office, where they gave a hands-on look at the upcoming Xbox Series X console to Digital Foundry.

Today, Digital Foundry uploaded a video on their Youtube channel unveiling the hardware of the next-gen console. They dig a lot on the topic about which we also discussed here.

However, we want to take one of the important hardware that will be used for this console.

Here it is, a tiny device that looks like a USB drive. It is actually an SSD storage that we will be able to put on the backside of our Xbox Series X.

The console will have a 1TB internal SSD storage. However, if you want to expand the storage to install more games, you will need to get that external SSD to be able to install more games.

Although, you will be able to connect a standard hard drive to the console via the USB slot, which will be useful only for the previous generation console games.

You won’t be able to install Xbox Series X games through the standard Hard drive. To install extra games after your internal storage is over, you will need to buy this external SSD.

Microsoft has taken this measure because of the quality standard they want to maintain on their console. It will be interesting to see what price this external SSD will have.

We are happy to see that the mystery port on the back of the console which was in so much of talks actually is the external SSD slot.
