inquiring what everybody thinks about the mention of it in the news blurb here at cd freaks and the original interview with oak technology at digitimes
they mention 48x dvd read spead in only the second half of this year? that they are already shipping chips
i was under the impression that 16-20x was the fundamental limit due to interference or noise, whereas with cd's its ~12k rpm ~48-52x
are dvd drives going to jump right to the same rotation and read speads in just a couple months?
wouldnt be of all that much use to me now as there arent many dvd software titles out, but once i get a dvd burner and use it for the numerous things that i do with cd's now... reading back at ~60megs/sec will be absolutely awesom
