As we continue to see the debut of the best portable gaming consoles, the market for smaller, better SSDs for these laptops continues to grow. This makes sense, since these portable gaming consoles are meant to handle some of the best PC games on the go, and those games tend to come with larger file sizes than usual. We now have SSD drives to match these increasingly powerful mobile devices.
Seagate also chose the M.2 format for the FireCuda 520N, which is important. The best M.2 SSDs are a particularly fast format for PCs, and are also great for gaming consoles, like the best PS5 SSDs. So, it makes sense that it would be chosen for mobile devices like the Steam Deck, Asus ROG Ally, and Lenovo Legion GO.
