Hey OCAU, I've scoured the web as best as I can but unfortunately can't find any definitive answer. Just wondering if anyone could confirm if running the same SSD drive internally or externally would be the same speed (or slower). There was some mention that the internal Sata was actually sata 2 in the Xbox One X but other mentions point to Sata 3 I didn't want to have an external hard drive enclosure usb sticking out of the xbox one x (where it is positioned I didn't want to place it on top of the drive due to heat) and internally would be much neater. Ultimately if Internal would be the same speed as External that would be amazing. Thanks for your time.
