Dual (multi) channel memory architecture.

The term dual channel refers to a DDR motherboards chipset that’s designed with two memory channels instead of one.The two channels handle memory-processing more efficiently by utilizing the theoretical bandwidth of the two modules, thus reducing system latency, the timing delays that inherently occur with one memory module. For example, one controller reads and writes data while the second controller prepares for the next access, hence, eliminating the reset and setup delays that occur before one memory module can begin the read/write process all over again.
