Benchmarks – Black Magic Design Disk Speed Test

In testing the My Passport Pro, we decided to test just RAID 0 to get an idea of the maximum performance of the unit. As you can see, in Black Magic, the Passport Pro was able to hit 211 MB/s read and 194 MB/s write.

 

Benchmarks – AJA System Test

 

All testing with AJA System Test is done with a 16GB file size.

In our first test with AJA, we test 720p, and the Passport Pro came in at 230 MB/s read and write.

Over on 1080p RAID 0, we found the drive hovering around 230 MB/s read and write with spikes up to 250 MB/s read.

With 4K in RAID 0, the Passport Pro showed similar results to what we found during 720p and 1080p. Here we have 230 MB/s read and write with some spikes towards 240 MB/s.
