This IS interface speed I'm talking about.  Real disks may be slower.

ACSI is only implemented on Atari systems, so the only relevant interface is on 
real Atari hardware.  If you can get I/O at over 1500KB/sec, you should tell 
everyone how.

And the SCSI chip on the TT will not transfer at an effective rate above
