I read Mr. Pabst's review of Pentium II and it appears to be a spin on
the theme that the only significant change from current x86s is the
new CPU card and socket arrangement which has no technical advantage
but prevents AMD and Cyrix chips from being plugged in and has been
patented/copyrighted/etc/etc so that no-one but Intel can do them.
Hasn't this been common knowledge for a while now? It has certainly
been gone over in the French computer rags...
