Where are the buffs??? For God's sake, surely somebody out there knows the answer to this. Where are you computer buffs??? 16X corresponds to a speed of 22160 KB/sec. 8X corresponds to a speed of 11080 KB/sec. That speed is only obtained when the write head is at the outer edge of the disc, the average speed for the entire disc is closer to 11X.
