According to XPG, the wired USB-C mouse can be “your game library in the palm of your hand.” The company claims that the current mouse prototype can accommodate up to 1TB of solid-state memory operating at 985 megabytes per second. As for how data from mouse SSD is transferred between mouse and computer, there is Gaming Launcher software that can be used on your PC.
