Liteon 2H 2002 Roadmap

Recent rumours of a higher speed CDRW are confirmed.

LTR-52326S *
LTR-48246S/W *
LTR-48166S/W
LTR-48126S
LTR-40126S/W

  • Require verification of new 20x+ RW media.

Support CAV, Mt Rainier, OB3V3 ext, etc. SATA supported by MT1510. 12x SKUs are in the channel already. 12x/16x RW units have 2MB buffer (proto units), 24x & higher are unknown (not decided yet?). MT1506/8/10 chipsets support 8/16MB. It’s interesting given the availability & price difference of 2, 4, & 8MB modules that a larger buffer isn’t used. FW will require rewrite, but marketing alone may be worth it… There is a reason why FW is updated for the newer CDRW drives simultaneously - the same code base - so there’s a reluctance to change this… Perhaps with SATA drives…

Other manufacturers will announce 52x24x52 & 50x24x50 products based on Sanyo/Ricoh logic.

No word yet on Liteon DVDRW units. MTK has had new LSI for some time…

Addendum:

I omitted the following models:
LTR-52246S/W
LTR-52206S
LTR-52166S

The last two are likely to be OEM & depend on various factors.

:confused: what’s this :confused:

Orange Book 3 V3.

Hi stevem. I really need a new burner. Im searching the Inet for releaseDates of the new Liteon 48xVers.6. But I cant find any Information. Do you know some closer Infos aubout its Release. Im really waiting for it. Have you heard anything about the progress of determing the 20x Rw Specs? Or anybody else here in the vast Inet??? echo echo echo…

Please tell me anything (about this).

Jens
THX!! :confused: :a :Z :frowning: … turn me to :slight_smile: :wink: :stuck_out_tongue: :cool: :smiley: :bigsmile:

As to your 20x+ CD-RWs:

These are the so called Ultra Speed CD-RWs (so to say, first we had “CD-RW”, then “High-Speed”, and now, the next generation is “Ultra-Speed”), and Mitsubishi already makes them. Yamaha 44/24/44 works fine with them.

And when then, will the Liteons be released???

Im really waitin for liteon!

Thanks so far

Jens!

Just checking the Alcohol support list, interesting entry for October 22nd, the Lite-On 52x32x52

2002/10/22 Add:
BENQ CRW 5224P
Lite-On LTR-52326S
Philips JackRabbit
Philips CDRW4816
Philips DVDRW416

I thought they were not making 32x rw

The Liteon LTR 481246S has been available for some time. In the US I believe that the LTR 52246S is now available, but not as yet here.

As they both use the Mediatek 6 chipset, it is easy to overclock the LTR 481246S to a LTR 52246S using the firmware readily available right now.

It is quite possible that you may be able to increase it to a faster RW speed later, again using the next firmware release.
