SSD speed is not amazing.
The rumor that a solid-state drive with a speed of 7 GB / s may be part of the Microsoft Xbox Series X game console did not materialize. According to new data, the console uses not so nimble SSD.
It is interesting that details about him were found on the Phison Electronics software engineer’s LinkedIn page – it was previously reported that this company is the developer of the SSD for the Xbox Series X (aka Xbox Scarlett). So, right on the page it is indicated that the console will use SSDs based on the Phison PS5019-E19 controller – without DRAM, but with support for the PCIe 4.0 x4 interface.
According to the data provided on the official website, drives on the Phison PS5019-E19 provide sequential read and write speeds of 3600 and 2200 MB / s, random read and write performance reaches 380,000 and 500,000 IOPS, and the volume varies from 512 GB up to 2 TB.
In general, it turns out that the SSD in the Xbox Series X in its speed will approximately correspond to the drives in modern PCs. As for the volume, it is likely to be 1 TB.
