Seagate FireCuda 510 1TB NVMe SSD Review


AJA System Test

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 Seagate FireCuda 510 1TB drive showed that it was capable of 2,865 MB/s read and 2,912 MB/s write speeds.

The drives with the Phison E12 controller usually have speeds close to 3 GB/s on AJA System Benchmark v12.5 and that is good enough to land it in the middle of the performance chart.
