CD-R Media Speed Question

What is different about 8X, 16X, 24X and 32X CD-R media? I understand they can handle burners of different max speeds (obviously), but what is it about the particular disc that makes it work better with a faster burner?

Next question (related), my new burner is 24X, so I made sure to get some 24X media. But all things equal, is 32X media superior to 24X media?

Thanks in advance!

I found a couple of sites which *should* have the answers to these questions, but after looking for ~ 15 minutes I didn't see the answers. But I did learn a few other interesting things.
