Jaguar Speedmatching

Jaguar drive speed matching data rates (MB/s) depend on the media and the generation style used (see [1] – [4])

media / Generation Jaguar 6 (12 speed steps) Jaguar 5 (12 speed steps) Jaguar 4 (13 speed steps) Capacity (native)
JE media @ Generation 6 up to 400MBps (1600 MBps) 20 TB
JD media @ Generation 6 up to 400MBps (800 MBps) 15 TB
JD media @ Generation 5.5 up to 360MBps 15 TB
JD media @ Generation 5 112 – 365 MBps 10 TB
JC media @ Generation 5 99 – 303 MBps 7 TB
JC media @ Generation 4 90 – 252 MBps 76 – 251 MBps 4 TB
JB media @ Generation 4 74 – 203 MBps 1.6 TB
JB media @ Generation 3 41 – 163 MBps 1 TB
