WD intros My Passport X portable hard drive

Western Digital, also known as WD, has introduced the new My Passport X portable hard drive. The new drive is designed for gamers and provides 2 TB of capacity, which means gamers will be able to take games around with ease. The My Passport X is best used for Xbox One and PC games and can house up to 50 modern games with no problems at all. In addition gamers can also take saved games to other computers with no need to upload and then download these files from the Internet.

“Game file sizes are expanding to 36 GB per game and upwards, and are projected to continue growing,” said Tony Tate, vice president and general manager of WD’s Content Solutions unit. “Console gamers are able to store on average only 10 games on the 365 GB out of 500 GB that is available on the onboard hard drive. The My Passport X portable drive delivers a fast and easy way to expand capacity and enables an expanded library of games on the go.”

The My Passport X portable hard drive will be useless if it cannot transfer the data it houses quickly enough. To do that it comes with a USB 3.0 port for fast data transfer speeds but there’s more – since the drive will be carried around a lot, it also comes with a chassis that can withstand shock and other interference. This portable hard drive is also very easy to setup and use.

The new My Passport X portable hard drive is now available at various retailers and online on WD’s web site. Expect to pay USD 139.99 for one such drive and the price also includes a 1-year warranty.
