Ultragreen MX CD-R Media certified to 54x

As the first 54x CD-RW writer has been announced to hit the market by middle of April, Ciba's Ultragreen CD-R dye media have been already certified by Mitsumi to meet the requirements for this fastest drive on the market. Advanced recording dye technology developed by Ciba Specialty Chemicals and latest CD-R manufacturing technology developed at Plasmon make sure that the end user can rely on stable performance when using ultrafast writing speeds.

Ciba Ultragreen MX dye media have been demonstrated to be ready even for higher speeds beyond 54x. Thus, the end user can be assured that even at these very high recording speeds there is enough margin to record and read data reliably and that CD-R media made according to Ciba/Plasmon technology provide maximum stability, compatibility and readability, now and in the future.

Ciba IRGAPHOR Ultragreen MX is today's market leading phthalocyanine dye for CD-R, qualified and used by major CD-R brands and media manufacturers. Ciba's cutting edge Ultragreen technology together with Plasmon's expertise in optical media engineering is available to media manufacturers worldwide.

Do you happen to know if this is the same media as the current 52x made by Plasmon? I've read about the new green dye, but haven't seen any yet.
I have seen some fairly negative reports about the Plasmon made 52x discs.

Do you where (in the US) this media can be purchased? I've never seen it for sale anywhere.

Problem is Plasmon isn't a manufacturer as such. They produce the equipment which is used to manufacture discs, which are then used by a multitude of different companies, in a similar way to MMM&M. So the discs range from very good to very bad.
