Synchronous Dynamic RAM (SDRAM)
To overcome this challenge, a new type of DRAM was developed that synchronized all data transfers to and from the CPU to the system memory with the system clock. This type of RAM is known as Synchronous Dynamic RAM, or SDRAM. By having the transfer signals in synchronization with the system clock, the timing of the transfers is much more controlled. This adds a significant increase in overall system performance compared to asynchronous DRAM.
