Blackmagic Disk Speed Benchmark

Benchmark Results

Benchmark Results

Blackmagic Design make a number of industry leading video capture cards, including those which can capture HD material at very high data rates. 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.

In this test, which mimics real world workloads we see that the results follow a similar trend to Sisoft Sandra with the SandForce based F100 and Vertex 2 achieving good read and write performance. Once again the lower cost V128 from Corsairs Nova Series produces a good level of write performance, nearly matching the C300 however nothing can compete with that drives read performance.

Kingston provide an improved read experience over the mechanical drives but even in RAID 0 mode the write result is not up to the same level and the Barracuda and VelociRaptor finish 30MB/s and 18MB/s faster.
