Nero's CD Speed burn tests are done twice, once with a CDR rated to 1x-52x burn speed, and a CD-RW rated to 4x-32x. Each disk was test with files of about 640MB in size. This test is done by simply placing blank recording media into the burner and running CD Speed the software will detect if it is CD-R or CD-R/W media and run the appropriate tests.

When it comes to CD burning, the Gigabyte GO-W0808A is up to the challenge! It's funny to see that the Gigabyte can surpass the 40x CD-R burning speed just at the very end of the disk! Overall, it meets its listed specs, and delivers 40X CD-R, and 24X CD-RW recording speeds.

The Gigabyte GO-W0808A puts in another good showing, this time in the DVD-ROM benchmark tests. It's nice to see the access times are not very high, but CPU utilization is much higher than anything else.
