I tried /x option to check digital CDDA playback and on my NTB but any change...

I tested on another machine at work, a bit newer core i5 750 Nehalem with intel 5x PCH chipset set to IDE mode. The controller and drives was recognized correctly:

XIDE, 6-05-2015. 80-MB Cache. CD/DVD name is MSCD000.
IDE0 Controller at I-O address FF90h, Chip I.D. 80863B20h.
IDE1 Controller at I-O address A080h, Chip I.D. 80863B26h.
IDE0 Primary-master disk is ST3500418AS, ATA-100.
CD0: IDE0 Primary-slave, hp DDVDW TS-H653R, ATA-100.
Kernel: allocated 46 Diskbuffers = 24472 Bytes in HMA

[s]but I didn't get any speed up neither with uide nor xide (both /x and /p tried too). In all cases I got ~15MB/s write and 20MB/s read as well as without the driver.[/s]

I don't know what I did wrong before but I retested again with FreeDOS 2040 and MS-DOS 7.10 and got better results:
