Do you really need to use the precious storage space of the Xbox Series X internal drive for running backwards compatible games? Or will standard SSDs connected via USB still do a good job? In this video, Rich runs a range of Xbox One X titles on the internal drive and stacks them up against SATA, NVMe and mechanical hard drive alternatives. The results are fascinating!
BTW Rich says here that a PCIe 4.0 NVMe is essential for PC gaming - he misspoke here: a good SATA drive is still great in the here and now!
