AJA System Test:
AJA System Test by AJA Video Systems measures system disk performance using video test files of different resolutions, sizes and codecs. We selected the standard 4K UltraHD resolution, a test file size of 1GB and the ProRes 4444 codec to see how this drive does with regard to video rendering performance. ProRes 4444 is used for heavy effects work and deep color projects. We changed the default test file size from 1GB to 16GB to better represent real-world usage. The results from this benchmark help content creators with regards to rendering expectations, throughput, file read/write expectations for transfers and that kind of thing.
Benchmark Results: The AJA System Test results on the HP SSD EX950 2TB drive was shown to average 2,937 MB/s read and 3,029 MB/s write. The drive dropped below 780 MB/s a good number of times on the disk write operation and it did so again under the disk reads. Despite a number of big performance dips we can see the HP SSD EX950 2TB was one of the fastest drives that we have tested on this benchmark test.
