XPG has just announced a new gaming peripheral concept. It’s a gaming mouse with RGB lighting, which doesn’t really make it any different from the thousands of options available in the market. So what’s the concept aspect of this mouse? Well, the company has just slapped a 1TB SSD storage into it.
For those unaware, XPG is the gaming and esports subbrand of the Chinese memory maker ADATA. Its subsidiary makes a number of gaming related products, and now, its latest concept pushes the boundaries of the norm. This new gaming mouse is called the XPG Vault Gaming Mouse Concept, which arrives with built in SSD storage. While mouse featuring storage is not unheard of, with many offering small storage to carry macros and other preferences of the gamer, the Vault takes it to another level entirely.
As the name suggests, it is quite literally a vault. Imagine your mouse being able to store 1TB worth of games, “to make your gaming libraries conveniently portable” (Via TheVerge). Notably, the company added that its “current prototype can integrate up to 1TB of Solid State memory running at 985MB/s.” It even supports USB Type C connectivity since it is a wired mouse. With 1TB worth of storage, one can store some modern titles and even carry a number of movies with them at all times.
Simply connecting to any laptop would have you gain access to these as well. Unfortunately, the company just announced this concept through a press release and did not reveal any finer details regarding this gaming mouse. However, this is set to be showcased during the CES 2022 event, so we can expect to catch a peek at this at the event. But considering that it is a concept in its prototype stage, it might just be a side project that never takes off or sees commercial release. Although, it is still quite an interesting kind of gaming mouse and definitely has a unique identity.
