What does the CAS latency value mean?
A) The hard drive delay between disk reads
B) The number of clock cycles between a memory request and receiving the data
C) The refresh delay on CRT displays
D) The packet delay to a web site
E) The time between the alarm ringing and the actual stumbling from the bed
The answer: B) The number of clock cycles between a memory request and receiving the data
The Column Address Strobe (or Column Address Select) Latency is the amount of time between a memory request sent and the data received. The lower the CL number, the fewer the clock cycles and the faster the data transfer.
