It sounds to me that your harddisk is going to die.
Test your HDD, especially burs rate!!

Did you post the write speed graph or the read speed graph ?

Looks like a read test of a rather ropey burn.

The 16x speed patch of of the DVD-ROM firmware is better used for speed testing a burn, as it IS rather demanding.

All a read test like that says, is the reader is struggling to read the burn at that speed - it could be that the burn is worse from there, or the burn could be fairly even but just not good enough to read any faster than 12x.

Kprobe at a flat 4x (the DVD-ROM can do it, though results are not comparable with writers) to see if it’s a bad burn, or just the read speed.
