Say hello to Seagate's new portable 512GB Game Drive for Xbox SSD. It's portable, so you can take your games to your mate's place.

Using flash storage, it fits about 15 titles (based on 35–50GB per game) and promises to reduce waiting at welcome screens - as well as enable quicker transitions between levels.

SSDs can be a great way to speed up a PC, but for those in pursuit of the ultimate performance, the Samsung 960 Pro is king. The problem is that it costs up to an eye watering $1700, albeit for a massive 2TB. For those on a slightly more modest budget, Samsung has now also released the more affordable 960 Evo.

We covered the launch back in September, but how do the drives stack up in the real world? (Spoiler - they are stupidly fast).

It’s that time of year again, when Samsung announces their latest solid state drives at an SSD summit in Seoul, Korea. Performance is the name of the game, with a new NVMe drive that bests last years 950 Pro by a decent margin. There is also a slightly more budget friendly EVO drive, which also offers top notch performance. So how much do they cost (spoiler, up to $1700!), and how did Samsung manage to improve speeds yet again?

Samsung has begun mass producing the industry's first NVMe PCIe solid state drive (SSD) in a single ball grid array (BGA) package.

The tiny (we're talking 20mm x 16mm x 1.5mm, weighing just a single gram here) new BGA NVMe SSD, named PM971-NVMe, has everything you'd expect from a full sized SSD — including NAND flash memory, DRAM and controller — and more.

The Samsung Portable SSD T3 is an external solid state drive that is smaller than a business card, weighs 51 grams and comes with up to 2TB capacity.

You'll get fast file transfers based on sequential read and write speeds of up to 450MB/s with a USB 3.1 interface — up to four times faster than some alternative external HDD solutions.

When I bought my Macbook Pro a year ago, I was feeling so internally guilty about spending $US1500 ($2,011) on a laptop that I only paid for 128GB of storage, a decision I've regretted about three times per day ever since. This solution isn't cheap, but at least it will stop me whining.
