When the Xbox Series was released, Microsoft and Seagate announced an agreement to be the official storage provider with support for the Xbox Velocity Architecture. Although they promised that more manufacturers would have access to be able to offer solutions, the reality today is that we can only buy a Seagate card and that is what it is.
Not long ago the company released a 2 Terabyte model, a real treat for those seeking greater storage capacity for their console. Although 1TB may seem like enough, there are always those who need to have more, so an additional option is never too much.
The 2TB Seagate model transfers files much faster
However, a detail that has gone unnoticed by many is that the new 2 Terabyte model has a much higher transfer speed than the base model launched in 2021. The 1TB model is capable of transferring data at 1.5GBps, while the new 2TB model does the same at 6.5GBps . Not bad change, right?
However, for those who are seeing conspiracies, this has a logical explanation, the larger the disk size, the higher the transfer rate usually is, so it is not something a priori intentional. In addition, there is the fact that we are talking about the transfer rate, not the disk read/write rate, which does affect the performance of the games, but in this case both models have the same rate.
