40D write CF card speed seems slow compared Nikon D300

There's a new article posted on Rob Galbraiths site:
http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/camera_multi_page.asp?cid=6007-9254

Write speeds in excess of 32MB per second! If the 40D could achieve that it would write 2 raw files a second! But it takes about 1.5 second to write one 14MB raw file.

I often shoot a few series of 3-4 shots when birding. The buffer fills up quickly and sometimes missed a few shots.
