As we know, next-generation gaming consoles will delight you with the speed performance of their drives, but not their volume. The Xbox Series X has a 1TB SSD, the PlayStation 5 has an 825GB, and the cheap Xbox Series S has only 500GB.
However, firstly, this is the total storage capacity excluding the operating system, and secondly, as usual, this is the “right” mathematical measure, implying that 1GB is 1 billion bytes, whereas due to binary computing in reality this is not the case with modern media.
The bottom line is that the Xbox Series X only has 802GB available to the user, since there is a “loss” due to the above conversion and 128GB is reserved for the operating system. And how much is available on PlayStation 5? Judging by the first reviews on the web, there will be only 660.7 GB of free space in the new console!
If you calculate, it turns out that 104 GB is reserved for the operating system, and it is very similar to the truth. However, users are unlikely to be happy with this truth, given the size of some modern games.
There is no data on the Xbox Series S, but if the situation is similar to the Xbox Series X, out of 500GB only about 338GB will be available for gamers, which is very modest.
