Default which processor for 24 speed to write at 24 speed?

sponsored links
My mate has a 24 speed writer but he's not sure if he's actually writing at 24 speed.

I have a 1800 celeron processor with no intention of upgrading any time soon. I have a 12 speed writer right now, a Plextor 12/10/32A - which used to be the dogs bollox! but it seems a bit slow with todays standards.
I'd like to buy a new writer but I don't want to buy 40 speed when there is no chance of me writing that fast.
Is there a rough guide to how fast you can burn with which processor? I realise it wouldn't be exact because of other variables.

My mate has a 1gh processor - can he be writing at 24 speed?

Also I don't think I'd buy anything like a Plextor again. I paid a fortune for it a few years back. My mate bought a Liteon and both are still going strong. I haven't been able to do anything that he can't so I'm afraid I'll be going for cheapest this time.

Any help or guidance here would be appreciated. Cheers.

Well it really isn't that simple.

There are sooooooooo many factors involved in this. Some of which are the speed of processor, RAM, drive set-up, Reader, Temp, software used, progs running in background etc, etc, etc...

All I can say is I myself have zero problems burning OTF with a 1.8 XP+ with 512 DDR RAM, Asus A7V333 mobo burning with a LiteOn 40125S and using a LiteOn Ltd-163 for reader using NTI CD Maker Pro/Clone/Fantom CD or any other software I've tried.

It's a case of set it all up and gp from there I'm afraid.

I know,
you need a 24X CPU

sorry I had to do that

I think with your 1800 celeron processor you can Burn @ 24X , but I don't think you will do on the fly over 16X, that's because of the reader and not the CDRW

Cd burning is very low on processor demand, you can burn at any speed with a 400 + processor. You will need a good reader though if you want to do on the fly copies at 24x. Also if you are burning from mp3,s on the fly at 24x about 600 mhz would be the minimum. Your 1800 celeron would be capable of burning at least 100x if there was a writer that fast.

That's not what I've been led to believe. I've always been told the processor does have a bearing on the speed at which you burn. One guy who told me that is the owner of a pc hardware store.
But basically there is no way to approximate a burn speed by processor size.
Thanx for all the help.
