A layout set out by Intel in comply to their 100MHz Front Side Bus.  Basically, different PCB layout and with SPD control on board.

PC 100, also referred to as PC SDRAM, is a set of specifications introduced by Intel to help future development of SDRAM components and memory modules
for Intel's new memory controllers. They are covering there own butt so to speak.
These specifications are designed to ensure that the PC-100 module is "fully compatible" with the new memory controller requirements. The timing demanded by Intel's new memory controllers is becoming so precise that a difference of a few nanoseconds can make a system crash!  This means that without these specs Intels memory controllers would be impossible to develop memory chips for!  These specs help other companies understand what they have to create in order to work with the Intel controllers.
This timing leaves no room for error in 100Mhz operation.  The 100Mhz refers to the new faster bus speeds available today.
