I believe you saw some BIOS remark.

The various flavors of the P Pro come in different speeds,
150 to 200 Mhz and three different internal caches 256, 512 or even 1MB. (200Mhz only for 1MB cache)

P Pros have NO MMX. That is the PII series, which is electrically identical to the PPros.   If fact, Tyan makes riser cards so if you buy a PII dual motherboard, (for the faster SDSIMM) you can put the riser card in and use the P-pros so you can have the full speed cache.... (but no MMX) MMX would have no benfit to a server, which is where the P pros are usually used....

As for the -S maybe you we're looking at a system that can have multiple Pro processors? and it only had a Single cpu in it

no, I also saw MMX-S too ( on single cpu board )
I think it is new-improvement.

Interesting.... I checked my system by yanking one of the Processors, then put the second one back in.... In both cases is displays a -S

I have never used the ones with more than 256K cache.....

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

MATTCEI's answer is right. : The  '-S' means CPU has 'SL ADVANCED POWER MANAGEMENT'. You have be wrong by rejecting his answer. And for say something other than MATICE's words: if you are interested in using MMX and/or in using the faster feututers of the BX/GX Slot1 PII boards (UDMA, AGP, SDRAM) you can buy a riser card from Tyan or ABIT and use your current CPUs there, or buy a P-II 'OverDrive',333MHz,dual-capable, 512K ECC L2 full speed cache, for about 600$ and use it in your old board OR the combo from the two: buy  2x P-II OverDrive, 2x riser cards, dual Slot1 GX board with 75/83 MHz buses: So you will have all feutures of current Pentium II PCs (not ONLY PII, but XEON PII becouse of the full speed cache). Then overclock the PIIOver 333 to 5x75=375 (NO risk), 5x83=415(little risk, VERY VERY Little with GOOD cooling), 5x100=500 (VERY BIG RISK = +100MHz above the fastest Xeon chip today). With the 600$ 415MHz overclocked OverDrive you become better performance that current 1000$ 400MHz Xeon chips (the riser card+GX combo will not cost above 250$)
best wishes!
