Yeah and like any big company they have competing divisions. The
PentiumPro is my favorite. The boyz that did that clocked the cache at
system speed. 1:1. The Pentium and P-II run the cache at 1/2 speed. IE:
A 200mhz has a 100mhz cache bus.

Anyway this is why you never see any other chip than a 200 mhz P-Pro.
The main Pentium division was bringing out the big plastic PII and the
P-Pro 200 out ran them up to around 300 mhz.



And if you don't like it, I got two words for you...
