DRAM Technology

The chipset controls whether your motherboard can use FPM, EDO, BEDO, or SDRAM memory (they are all explained here). Changing the memory type impacts the way that memory is read and written to, which is controlled by the chipset. In addition, some chipsets are better than others with certain types of memory; a chipset can be optimized to provide faster access to a certain kind of memory, while being less efficient at using a different kind.
