There are tully's up to 1.26 gig with 512 of cache for sale now. The 512 chips are being called server chips and from what I gather are the only ones with SMP support. There are 1.1, 1.13, 1.2, and 1.26 tully's out now. I think anything 1.2 and over is the .13 micron. I have found conflicting info on the sub 1.2 being .13 or .18 micron.

Coppermine desktop cpu cores effectively worked well up to 900MHz.
Beyond 900MHz required minor core modifications.
The 180nm coppermine core non-overclocked top speed is 1.1GHz.
The 130nm tualatin desktop core begins at 1.2GHz and requires a motherbaord that specifically supports the tualatin core voltage. Intel makes the d815EEA2U motherboard to support PIII tualatin cores. Asus makes a tualatin 815 board as well.
The 130nm PIII cpus are more expensive than 1.7GHz P4 cpus.
The desktop PIII will not be available much longer as they will be discontinued soon.
The mobile PIII will be around for a while. It will be axed when the mobile P4 hits mainstream in 2003.
Intel plans on continuing the Celeron desktop line with the tualation 130nm core. However it will remain crippled with a 100MHz FSB and 128KB L2 cache. But they will be cheap and overclockable.
