    How can I tell if I have a 4X or 8X superdrive?

    I bought a rev A 2.5 G5 with the liquid cooling (rev A? - ordered day they were announced).

    I thought they were 4X drives and at some magic point were secretly upgraded?

    But I was wondering how I could tell - I remember some rumor all G5s had 4X but they were really locked down 8X or some silly non sense.... or not....

    Any simple answers?
