Benchmarks: CD-Speed Data/Audio

Nero CD Speed - Data - Benchmarks Source: Ahead Software

CD Speed is a CD-ROM benchmark which can test the most important features of a CD-ROM drive. In this particular test we use a pressed CD-ROM with about 640MB of data as the test disk. Using a CDR or CDRW as the test disk may (or may not) impact the results slightly, so the pressed disk is the de facto standard.

Even though MSI is new to the scene, they still do very well for themselves. With a high average speed and low access time, you got yourself a fast optical device reader!

Nero CD Speed 99 - Audio - Benchmarks Source: Ahead Software

CD Speed is a CD-ROM benchmark which can test the most important features of a CD-ROM drive. In this particular test we use a pressed Audio CD with about 65 minutes of audio on it as the test disk. CDROM's in general have a harder time processing audio data, and hence the results can be drastically slower than that of data tests alone.

Again the MSI 52x CD-RW does very well for itself here. It has the highest average speed by far and its random and 1/3 seek times are very good. Its full seek time is quite high, though unlike the Plextor 40x CD-RW, the disc load at 8X is very low.
