Benchmarks - AJA System Test


All testing with AJA System Test is done with a 16GB file size over 500 frames.




First, we look at 720p read where we show the read and write speeds over 500 frames. Here we have the read speed staying consistent around 600 MB/s with peaks up to 1100 MB/s. Write speeds held strong upwards of 1100 MB/s.




Over to 1080p with our RAID 0 array, we have the LBD coming in with peak rates of 1200 MB/s read and write.




4K really calmed things down quite a bit. Here we see the LBD reach near 1400 MB/s read and 1300 MB/s write.




Now we switch over to RAID 1 in the OS X Disk Utility. In our 720p test, the LBD did close to 1000 MB/s read and 600 MB/s write.




1080p stretched things out a bit more, and we see the read speeds touch 1200 MB/s read and 600 MB/s write.




4K again calmed down the charts, and we see the LBD reach 1400 MB/s read with 600 MB/s write.
