Here's just silly question--I understand the new Pentium II CPUs with, say, the Asus P2B Motherboard coupled with PC100 SdRam are capable of 100 Mhz Bus Speeds, but which CPUs do that? I heard a PII 300 was bare minimum. Is this true?

hi,

The Codename 'Deschutes' is standing for several different Pentium II CPUs and doesn't really say more than that it is a Pentium II CPU that runs at a higher clock speed than 300 MHz, using the .25 micron technolgy. There will be a 'normal' Deschutes for the now well known Slot 1, in other words nothing but a faster version of the Pentium II as we already know it, but also there'll be a Deschutes for the upcoming Slot 2, which is supposed to not suffer from the 512MB cacheable RAM area limit anymore, it will be able to run in a multi CPU environment of more than only dual, as valid for the current Pentium II and is hence targeted to the server market, replacing the Pentium Pro. The Slot 2 will have more connectors which will be arranged in 3 instead of the current 2 lines on top of each other. Both Deschutes versions will reach the 100 MHz bus speed next year, the Slot 1 Deschutes running on the 440BX chipset at 100 MHz, the Slot 2 Deschutes running on the 450NX chipset. Note that both CPUs use the same codename.

If you are not fan of Intel you can also take a look at AMD K6-2 3D NOW. This proccessor offers superior 3D speed for a quite low price. You can work with 300MHz version of this processor at bus speed of 100MHz if you have a mainboard based on VIA MVP3 chip set.
You can visit AMD site (www.amd.com)  to get more information.
