What does the x stand for on 32x?
The x on 32x means that, theoretically, this drive is 32 times faster than the original CD-ROM drive. See the transfer rates for exact speeds. The following table shows the standard transfer rates and access times of the majority of CD-ROM drives. The following figures are averages. You can expect to find that these averages may be slower or faster than your CD-ROM drive.
|DRIVE SPEED||TRANSFER RATE (bps)||ACCESS TIME (ms)|
|CAV drives (12x - 24x)||1,843,200 - 3,686,400||150-90|
