Not sure.  Whilst travelling home yesterday I was reading about the 1 x having a poor hd drive, I wonder if this will be changed to a better one at some point.

I installed tanks on a hard drive, not even SSD, and it runs fine.

 

I googled around to find drives which were recommended for Xbox One.

you would have thought for the cost of the xbox one x,microsoft would have put a ssd inside,trying to save a £ I suppose.

its bound to be a sales tactic,  in 6/12 months time an upgraded version will be available.

Pop the flash drive from the 4 gig 360 to the xbone no problem. :honoring:

Bit confused, what do you mean "run faster"? The only change would be the time that it takes to load up the game/matches, considering that you're also dependent of the server response and the initial 20s each match, i don't think it's worth it for this game, for other games (especially singleplayer), sure.

In a new hiatus of Wot. See you when the bunch of incompetents at WGC finally figure out how to do their work and balance the game.

The internal drive on the x is 50% faster than on the regular one, you really don't need an external ssd for the x, want proof? when you play a multiplayer match on wot see which players load the match the fastest, it's always you and someone else either with the one x or someone with an ssd.

I have the one x, and I'm always the first to load the match first.

That's not proof. I have the game on a 32 gig flash drive purchased from a liquidation store for 10 bucks. Play on a 4 gig 360 with a wifi connection and I'm always in a battle before the timer goes to 20 second countdown.

Go to YouTube digital foundry has a video comparing loading times of the x vs the one vs ssd, the x's is really much faster. You can find more comparisons there.

Small example: loading GTA V from start up to gameplay.

Xbox one X internal drive: 51 seconds.

Xbox one X external SSD(usb 3.0): 50 seconds.

Xbox one S internal drive: 2 mins 03 seconds

Xbox one S external SSD(usb 3.0): 1 mins 02 seconds

​LOL... Those players with One X load the map first, way before standard One or Xbox 360 players. Of course you can't see the difference unless your platooning with someone who's using One X.

:D... right, 'of course'. No one is claiming to see things they can't :teethhappy:

  I load in and there are 2 or 3 other players not greyed out and the timer is at 1:32. Those other 2 players are the only ones with an xbox 1 x and were waiting for soooo long :teethhappy:. You say things like, 'way before' (clearly not the case; take it easy with those exaggerations, bud)  and 'of course you can't...unless...' with so much conviction :teethhappy:


 

When are xbox 1 x players loading into the match, when the timer is at 1:55? :teethhappy:

Usb 3 is actually faster than the sata connection on the internal drive which is where the bottleneck is. That ssd will be pretty snappy.
