CD-ROM drives are getting ridiculously fast. I'm not just talking about transfer rates, but rotational speeds. The newer drives are tornadoes stuffed in a 5.25" drive bay that spin at 10,000 RPM or more, faster than nearly any hard drive. While the performance is better than ever, there are some problems with this approach.
The first is potential noise and vibration problems caused by all that motion. Some drives are better than others about this, but generally, if you have any rattles hiding in your case, a fast CD-ROM will expose them quickly. Even without a rattling case, spin-up can sound like a muted jet engine, and unbalanced discs can sound like they're going to exit through the side of your PC.
Een nieuwe technologie genaamd TrueX zou deze drive supersnel en superstil moeten maken.
