dimm stands for dual inline memory module.

sdram stands for synchronous dynamic random access memory.

DIMM is an acronym that refers to a certain configuration of memory, not any specific type. There are EDO DIMMs, SDRAM DIMMs, and DDR SDRAM DIMMs.

There are different types of DIMMs, aside from the different types of memory. Older EDO (extended data output) DIMMs came in either 5 volt or 3.3 volt varieties. The new DDR SDRAM DIMMs won't fit in the same slot as the old 184 pin SDRAM and EDO DIMMs.

SDRAM and DDR SDRAM are often used in video cards these days.
