CDR-Info have a roundup of three ultra fast 40x CDRW drives from LiteOn, ASUS and PleXWriter. It's getting ridiculous if you ask me, when will it all stop? I don't think we will see anything much faster than 40x for a while, at least till CDR technology is improved. It is not very often I see spindles of CDR's which guarantee write speeds of 40x, usually nothing higher than 20x or 16x at best. Nevertheless, the roundup is a fairly good read.
