System Timing and Memory Technologies

The maximum timing level that you can specify for the system depends a great deal on the kind of DRAM technology being used. Newer DRAM is organized specifically to increase the speed that it can run at; in fact in many cases speed is the only practical difference between the various kinds. For example, in most Pentium systems, regular fast page mode (FPM) memory has a burst cycle time of 3 clock cycles, while extended data out (EDO) memory will run with only 2 clock cycles. SDRAM will usually require only one clock cycle when bursting. This is discussed in detail here.
