Burst mode access on a cPCI bus using LabVIEW VISA VIs

From what I understand, the best way to move blocks of data to a 3rd party device on a cPCI bus is through the VIs 'VISA Move In XX' and 'VISA Move Out XX'. Do these VIs perform burst mode data transfer? If not, are there other VIs or properties that I can set to operate in burst mode over the PCI bus?

According to our NI-VISA documentation "the VISA driver can perform 32-bit PCI burst accesses because it is just memory, to improve throughput." Other than that I will have to investigate further...
