Burst SRAM is used as the external L1 and L2 memory for the Pentium microprocessor chipset. Burst SRAM (also known as SynchBurst SRAM ) is synchronized with the system clock or, in some cases, the cache bus clock. This allows it be more easily synchronized with any device that accesses it and reduces access waiting time.
