If you are still wondering about SSD vs HDD storage, the higher speeds and greater reliability of SSD technology carries the day. The best SSDs for gaming are internal drives because they can transmit data much faster than external SSDs that are held back by USB connection speed limits. The XPG Gammix S70 Blade 2TB Internal SSD is an M.2 2280 form factor with a PCIe Gen 4 x4 interface that’s also backward compatible with PCIe 3. If you install it on a PC or laptop motherboard with a PCIe 4 interface the sequential Read/Write rate is up to 7400/6800 MB per second. On a PS5, the 2TB XPG Internal SSD has a 6100 MB per second sequential read speed.

Intended for internal applications only, the XPG Gammix S70 Blade has an integrated heat sink and comes with a 5-year limited warranty. While you can install this SSD in a PCie 3.0 port, in that case the maximum sequential R/W speeds are limited to 3400/3000 MB per second, which doesn’t really cut it for high-speed play with the most demanding games.
