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 5GB 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 that the M6e has some really competitive performance with uncompressed video files, outperforming the SATA models on writes and easily passing them on reads. In fact due to the small variances between benchmark runs the 128GB actually manages to peak a touch higher than the 512GB, not enough to make a real world difference mind you. In writes the 512GB M6e excels. It is that simple.
