The Xbox Series X’s SSD is also made in Malaysia

A tear down of the Xbox Series X reveals yet another component, its SSD, is made in Malaysia. — Microsoft

Reverse engineers have discovered another component in the new Xbox Series X that’s made in Malaysia, though the device itself ironically isn’t officially sold here.

In a YouTube video, Spawn Wave did a tear down of the console and found an SSD (solid state drive) by SanDisk that had a ‘Made in Malaysia’ label.

Twitter user Firdaus Omar, who highlighted the video, tweeted that it was one more reason the console should be made available locally, as even the SSD was made here.

Tech streamer @ratoborrachudo also did a tear down of the Series X console and tweeted a different image of the SSD, which had the brand Western Digital and was labelled Made in Malaysia.

Western Digital owns SanDisk, having acquired its former data-storage making competitor back in 2015.

To note, Microsoft does not officially sell its videogame consoles in Malaysia. Tech site recently confirmed the fact again with Microsoft Malaysia, after a local gaming website reviewed a unit.

Earlier in the year, technology YouTuber Austin Evans revealed that the Series X’s processor was made in Malaysia.

His tweet, showing him holding the chip with the Xbox logo and the words Series X, Project Scarlett and Made in Malaysia, turned the phrase “Made In Malaysia” into one of the top trending topics of the day (April 7) on Malaysian Twitter.
