 Memory Timings Explained

"The chipset supports the microprocessor. It usually contains several "controllers" which govern how information travels between the microprocessor and other components in the system. The memory controller is normally part of the chipset, and this controller establishes the information flow between memory and the microprocessor. In the case of a motherboard with Dual-Channel memory capability there are two memory controllers. The new AMD Athlon64 microprocessors have the memory controller integrated in the microprocessor."
