HD Video Read/Write Speeds

Blackmagic Design make a number of industry leading video capture cards, including those which can capture HD material at very high data rates and as a result having a disk with a fast write speed is essential. To aid users in configuring their system for optimal captures Blackmagic includes a utility with their hardware which records the real world disk speed and gives the framerate available for that speed.

NOTE: We are using BMD’s new disk test for this review which is not comparable with the old version. The new version works by writing/reading data to/from our drive (up to 5 GB at a time) and displaying a MB/s figure as well as Frames per Second information. This test is particularly useful as SSDs cannot use their compression algorithms, what we are seeing here is true real-time read/write of video content. Cache burst performance is also removed from the equation by writing large amounts of data which exceed the cache volume.

In this test we see some results which are expected based on our use of Sandforce drives in the past. They are not quite up to the speed of other drives when working with HD video file writing, reads are fine but writes suffer in comparison to the other drives. For those devices which don’t use Sandforce we see each hitting around the 500MB/s mark with Toshiba achieving a 497.3MB/s rating. A very good result, but the reads are even better where the THNSNH256GCST essentially ties the 840 Pro for fastest drive.
