Seagate Storage Expansion Card for Xbox Series X|S Review

December 14, 2020 9 Views

The latest generation of consoles are out…sort of. If you can find an Xbox Series X or S, you’re pretty lucky haha. The new Xbox series X|S comes with amazing performance numbers and either 1TB or 512GB of NVMe SSD storage. But with more games comes more storage needs, and Seagate is swooping with its Seagate Storage Expansion Card for Xbox Series X|S for a solution.

The Seagate Storage Expansion Card for Xbox Series X|S allows users to double or more than double their console capacity while maintaining performance. This small form factor card adds 1TB of capacity and leverages PCIe Gen4 technology to let gamers get the most out of their games. Currently, this is the only game in town as far as NVMe-native expandable capacity for the Xbox Series X|S so there is nothing else to compare it to!

The main advantage the CFExpress-based Seagate Storage Expansion Card offers is it comes in a smaller form factor and is the main recommended storage expansion offering on the market for the new Xbox. The downside of course is cost, but even then it is easily the most cost-effective CFExpress card on the market today. You can grab this 1TB produt for around $200 dollars currently.

  1. Is it possible that the card didn't negotiate to its full potential with your CFexpress reader due to the custom firmware?

    Perhaps 3.0 at only a single lane to try and lock people using them outside of the Xbox? Since the usecase is only ever with the Series X/S at PCIe 4.0 x2?

  2. The Dirt 5 dev says they got the drive pushing 10gbs using the velocity architecture. In the Game On interview. They asked why MS advertises only 3.5max and he said he doesn’t know. I guess velocity has a huge play in why they used this method.

  3. Shame the memory is just to much money, they have good idea but to spend more on one which people already spend on the console. I hope they make a different version for people who need one at a lower cost.
