Fast Page Mode

Type of RAM memory chips used on the PC up to 486 and first Pentium systems. Its main feature is the capability of reading sequential data faster, hence its name. For example, assuming four data store consecutively (four data stored in four consecutive addresses), the first data can delay several clock cycles to be read (seven cycles, for example), but the following data can be read always using three clock cycles. Because of that this kind of memory is said to have an x-3-3-3 access cycle.

This kind of memory is found basically on SIMM-30 and SIMM-72 memory modules.
