Stands for “Dual in line Memory Module”, DIMM is just a circuit board that keeps memory chips. DIMMs have a 64bit route due to the Pentium Processor requirements.

Due to the new bit route, DIMMs could be mounted one at the same time, unlike SIMMs on the Pentium that will need two to be included.

while standard DIMMs have a 64-bit data path. Since Intel’s Pentium, many processors have a 64-bit bus width, requiring SIMMs installed in matched pairs in order to populate the data bus. The processor would then access the two SIMMs in parallel. DIMMs were introduced to eliminate this disadvantage.
