Finally. I wonder when the US will get its 755UF or 760UF…

Now, it will be interesting to see if there is a chipset that really allows for 16x burning. German c’t tested some other drive at an ultimate speed of 8x because more wasn’t possible.

The chipsets in the older UF drives were good enough for 16x burning…

I.e. not the chipsets in the drives but those on the mainboards.

You mean the enclosure’s chipset? That’s what I was talking about. The older UF drives used Epson for the IEEE1394 controller and NEC for USB2.0, and both of those can reach 16x max. Here is the 716UF tested on boards based on Intel 915P and 865P:

No, I’m talking about the practical speed of the controller in the mainboard of the pc. I’ve dumped the c’t already. It was in one of the last few editions.

Oh, well heck Intel chipsets have been able to produce 16x over USB 2.0 since i845/ICH4 in 2003. I’m not sure what setups c’t were testing on…

Now announced for North America:
