Xbox Series X has an NVMe M. 2 SSD, which should make it easier to repair the console

The type of SSD installed in the next-generation console from Microsoft was noticed by the Brazilian video blogger Rato Borrachudo, who was one of the first to completely disassemble the device during a stream on Twitch.

The Xbox Series X uses a 1 TB NVMe M. 2 2230 drive from Western Digital, and it is not soldered to the Board itself, but screwed to it with a screw. In one of the photos posted by the blogger on Twitter, you can also see the SSD — SN530 model.

Apparently, it is based on a similar version for the PC, which along with all the characteristics can be found on the WD website. However, the interface is different: the drive from the manufacturer’s website uses PCIe Gen 3, and the Xbox Series X uses PCIe Gen 4.

Such a console device should greatly simplify its repair in case of failure since the SSD will be easier to replace.

I enjoy playing games, and gaming is a passion of mine. Among my favorite games are Tears of the Kingdom, GTA, and Cyberpunk.
