Why can 12x writing be faster than 16x writing

Pioneer DVR Writers have a check system in place which confirms each and every media’s ability to maintain high quality at high write speeds, therefore at times it may take longer to write to media. However, when at 16X, the transfer rates are faster than that at 12X. When attempting 12X/16X writing on 8X certified media, the DVD Writer selects the appropriate media specific write strategy. This is accomplished based on Pioneer’s unique technology, however what must not be overlooked is the media’s quality. It is also a key factor in determining transfer rate (the ability to switch to 12X/16X) and overall write time.
