The XSX is SO FAST with it's locked clocks CPU/GPU and Velocity architecture in combination does not need an SSD like in the PS5. The SSD in the XSX is just fine and this thing SMOKES!!!!!!
Credible developers are now saying the XSX is so fast, and it is faster then the PS5, and they expect games to be able to run at 120FPS and at Native 4K. No compromises the XSX is BLAZING FAST!!!!!!
Updated info and some updated Velocity info.
Xbox Velocity Architecture – The Xbox Velocity Architecture is the new architecture we’ve created for the Xbox Series X to unlock new capabilities never-before seen in console development. It consists of four components: our custom NVMe SSD, a dedicated hardware decompression block, the all new DirectStorage API, and Sampler Feedback Streaming (SFS). This combination of custom hardware and deep software integration allows developers to radically improve asset streaming and effectively multiply available memory. It will enable richer and more dynamic living worlds unlike anything ever seen before. It also effectively eliminates loading times, and makes fast travel systems just that: fast.
More info about Velocity and how it basically makes up the difference in SSD and the combination makes the XSX Blazing Fast.
Incorporate Velocity with the CPU/GPU and super fast memory bandwidth to the XSX GPU and you have a real MONSTER!!!!!!
Oh look bu bu bu Colt & Dealer are fanboys and they never get interviews or have inside connections?

More from Phil Spencer himself he sound pretty confident that the XSX is way more powerful then PS5.
