Essentially it is a Intel Pentium II CPU, which has been stripped for some cache, thereby making it slower that the original Pentium II.
The first ones, had almost no cache making them really slow, but Intel made a new series with 128Kb cache and then they could match the AMD K6 processors. They also changed the socket, so a cheaper Motherboard could be used with Celeron CPU's. The original ones was seated in a Slot1 socket like the PII, but now they are seated in socket 370 Motherboards.

Summary:
A low end Intel PII CPU.
