What is the difference between DVD r 16x recording speed and 8x?

Where are the buffs???
For God's sake, surely somebody out there knows the answer to this. Where are you computer buffs???
16X corresponds to a speed of 22160 KB/sec.
8X corresponds to a speed of 11080 KB/sec.

That speed is only obtained when the write head is at the outer edge of the disc, the
average speed for the entire disc is closer to 11X.
