As far as I can tell (I avoid using my German as much as possible
), the article doesn't mention any more specifics. Only that it will incorporate those new features (in PlexTools). This might mean that the analysing features might also be possible with the newer PlexWriters. After all, they are already capable of using C2info for adio extraction.
On a less positive note, when using Gigarec to the fullest (40% more on a CD-R) it is only readable in the drive itself. When using '20% Gigarec', it is also readable in the 48x Plex with fw 1.04.
The article is not very good and seemingly not written by anyone knowledgable in the field (although it is supposed to be from c't magazine). So we'll have to wait for more info (from Plextor) before jumping to conclusions. As far as I understand the Gigarec technology, it should be possible to read the high density dics on most high speed CD-ROM drives. We'll have to wait and see.......
