Games and gamers are at the center of everything we do and we’re always looking for ways to offer the best ways to play on Xbox. Today we’re thrilled to unveil the Xbox One Elite Bundle, the ultimate gaming experience that comes fully loaded and jam packed with premium features to take your gaming to the next level. In addition to a matte finish, the Xbox One Elite Bundle includes a 1TB Solid State Hybrid Drive, which stores frequently-accessed files on a solid state partition and optimizes system performance so you can get to the action up to 20 percent faster from energy-saving mode. This means you can spend more time this holiday playing the greatest games in Xbox history, including Halo 5: Guardians, Rise of the Tomb Raider and Forza Motorsport 6.
The balance of finding an affordable, fast, and high capacity hard drive seems impossible. Seagate may have the answer in what they call, a Solid State Hybrid Drive (SSHD), now in its 3rd generation. Given its name, the drive is designed for small laptops. Though I’ve found that it will work perfectly fine in PCs, and will even fit PlayStation 4s an alternative means to get better performance at a fraction of the cost of an actual SSD.
