AJA Capture and Playback
Starting with Full HD, there isn't much holding back the 8big. With both 8 and 10-bit RGB, we got a peak of 125 FPS while HDCAM gave us 255 FPS. Even when using RAID 5, 6, and 10, the 8big was able to produce solid performance with the lowest results coming in 8-bit RBG at 61 FPS.
Full HD playback was solid from RAID 10 and 65 FPS to RAID 0 producing a massive 292 FPS. Peak results came with ProRes at 927 FPS while the lowest was 65 FPS in 8 and 10 bit RGB and RAID 10.
I figured Ultra HD may make the 8big work a little, and as you can see above, our capture results show this device bringing in some rather low FPS with 8 and 10-bit RGB. On the other side, HDCAM and ProRes still produced solid performance of 73 FPS and 232 FPS, respectively.
Ultra HD playback topped at 267 FPS with RAID 0 and ProRes while HDCAM gave us 75 FPS at its highest and 55 FPS at the lowest. 8 and 10-bit RGB and YUV topped at 38, 55, and 69 FPS.
Benchmarks - Sequential with Black Magic Disk
We were not quite able to hit top numbers in terms of the marketing figures, but we did hit 1043 MB/s read and 998 MB/s write with RAID 0.
RAID 5 came in at 903 MB/s read and 711 MB/s write.
RAID 10 producing 838 MB /s read and 849 MB /s write followed up RAID 5.
