And soon they will saturate at 16X!

DVD Burner speeds is inching towards 16X where it will saturate. The rewrite speed will probably reach 8X and the dual- layer speed to 4X.

Then what? Blue ray writers and the story will go on.....

As far as the DL is concerned, enabling bit setting makes DL +R and DL -R meaning less.

What do you think?

I hope RW can reach 12x and DL 6x-8x. 8x for RW wouldn't be bad but I hope DL would go past 4x. I know my hopes for DL are a bit high, but that it would be great if it reached those speeds.

If they can go to 4x this quickly I bet they can go further. I thought they quoted a BenQ spokesperson as saying so.

I thought i read a story about a new laser head(?) that would go past the 16x speed limit on dvd burning.

Laser is not a problem. Real problem is implementing and designing a robust servo to deal with 10K+ RPM.

yeah but what is the media limit? DVD media that can burn at 20x would probably be very hard to manufacture in large quantities and cost quite a bit. Same reason the CD writers never went above 52X. They had the ability to do 56x but no media maker had plans for media past 52x or so I recall.
