multibank DRAM (MDRAM)
The Multibank DRAM (MDRAM) is a graphics memory that consists of several memory chips. In this architecture, the individual memory chips are divided into independent banks that are connected via a common bus and form the multibank.
Each memory bank corresponds to a partial memory of 32 KB. The individual banks, which can be interleaved, can be accessed simultaneously, increasing the overall performance of the MDRAM.
MDRAMs are a type of video RAM. They are used in gafic applications and operate synchronously. Because the memory capacity of the RAM is matched to the application, MDRAMs are less expensive than other VRAMs.
