How many kilobytes per second is 1x DVD?

How many kilobytes per second is 1x DVD? Tried a quick google but couldn't find anything concrete. I have a Creative PC-DVD ROM which claims to be equivalent to a 20x CD-ROM. It's a 2x DVD-ROM drive, so I assume 1x DVD is about equivalent in read speed to a 10x CD-ROM, which makes it 1500kB/s. Am I right?
