AOpen will demonstrate the DRW8800 8x DVD±R/RW dual burner, possibly in the market before CeBIT, and another 12x dual DVD burner (12x DVD+R write).
The Korean answer comes from LG. The company will present the first 12x super multi-format DVD burner; to support all 5 DVD formats. The GSA-4120B will offer 12x writing for DVD+R, while the rest specifications include 8x DVD-R, 4x DVD-RW/+RW and of course 3x DVD-RAM recording.
Official standards for such high DVD recording speeds hae not yet established, although Philips's working on the 16x DVD+R recording. This speed will mean that a 4.7GB disc will be recorded in 6 minutes. Higher are not feasible due to high rotation speeds required.
