Learn about comparing performance
If you’re comparing specs with other storage systems the first thing to note is that we fill our disks to near capacity, then we start the real tests. That’s important, because it’s easy to get higher numbers on new, barely used disks. So, the numbers in our stream chart above represent a much harder test — they show what you can expect from an EVO after extensive use, not just what you’ll get when it’s fresh out of the box. We capture many individual varied-length clips using several Mac and HP workstations and professional NLEs. The clips are stacked in the timelines, mercilessly chopped up, and edited with transitions/dissolves while random starts, stops and scrubs are performed on the workstations. (We also run Finder copies during captures and playback!) After that, the tests loop continuously over several days.
