Black Magic 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 Black Magic include a utility with their hardware which records the real world disk speed and gives the framerate available for that speed.

From the above results one can realize that the drives of the Vertex series don’t suffer from the low write speeds most first generation drives could attain. Not only it can outperform the mechanical drives but it does so by a very large margin, supplying more than twice the performance a mechanical drive would. The Apex series drive could compete during the read rate test but fell far behind at the write rate test, which is to be expected from a cheaper drive with an inferior controller.
