A synchronous circuit will synchronize every signal change to some kind of clock signal so there is obviously a delay between state transitions because they can only occur at an edge of a clock,
on the other hand asynchronous will change the output signal state as soon as the input changes, the only delay will be the one introduced by the actual hardware gates.

Asynchronous is faster & safer than synchronous but when you have to process huge amount of data then synchronous is preferable(faster).
