Toshiba / KIOXIA XG5-P 2TB 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 KIOXIA XG5-P 2TB drive showed that it was capable of 2,581 MB/s read and 949 MB/s write speeds. The write disk performance pattern showed that the write speeds at times was nearly 1.5 GB/s, but at other times was under 400 MB/s.

When you compare this result to the other storage drives that have been tested on this system you’ll see that is struggles to compete with the other NVMe drives.
