In order to reduce start-up time and shorten loading times during play, models come with super-fast SSD (up to 512 GB) SSDs coupled to an optional HDD storage (up to 2TB). A Gigabit Ethernet port provides fast and reliable wired connections, while wireless MIMO 802.11ac 2×2 wireless technology offers better wireless connectivity. The wide range of ports includes a USB 3.1 Type-C (Gen 1) input, a USB 3.0 port that also allows charging, two USB 2.0 and an HDMI 2.0 port that can support up to 90 Hz refresh rate .
