That does not matter for me. And it is an 8x writer.

===> x@y:/usr/tmp %cdrecord -v speed=8 foo.iso
Starting to write CD/DVD at speed 1 in real TAO mode for single session.
Track 01:  698 of  698 MB written (fifo 100%) [buf  97%]   1.0x.
Track 01: Total bytes read/written: 732856320/732856320 (357840
Writing  time: 4785.882s
Average write speed   1.0x.
Min drive buffer fill was 96%
Fixating time:  243.362s
