Lmao, 5GB/s... You wish, pal!You clearly don't understand the delineation between sustained speed and theoretical peak speed. The Series X SSD operates at 2.4GB/s sustained. That is the slowest the drive will ever operate in worst-case scenarios and for extended usage.
Microsoft never disclosed their theoretical peak speeds, their entire angle has been about what the drive can sustain, not about its random read and write potential. Based upon other drives with sustained speed similar to that it's most likely around 5GB/s.
Just like you wish Series S didn't exist.
Look at the speed when running Series SSD through crystal disk mark. It's not even 2 GB/s.
