Compaq Computer Corp. has announced that the world’s fastest CD-ROM drive – the 52X TrueX – will be available as an option on its Deskpro, Prosignia and Presario PCs.
The 52X TrueX CD-ROM drive, manufactured by Kenwood Technologies, dramatically increases transfer rate performance by reading multiple tracks of data simultaneously. As a result, the drive is faster, quieter and more reliable than conventional drives, without increasing rotational speed, disk vibration and noise levels.
