My friend has a dell computer that claims to be 1.1 GHz Pentium 3, but it only has a 100 MHz front side bus. This should rule out Tualatin because the tullies have 133 front side bus. Is this some kind of Pentium 3 released only to Major Manufacturers like Dell and Gateway?
Or do you think its possible that Pentium 3 is going to become the value line to replace Celeron?
I know I was suprised when Duron was a good performer compared to Thunderbird, maybe this new pentium 3 from intel is supposed to be the same way against Pentium 4?
This is indeed strange. The only 1100 I know of with 100FSB is the Celeron, which is supposed to be Coppermine, which has 128k cache. The new Tually Celerons haven't made the market yet, and should have 256k cache.
Ive had the 1.1 and 1.2 GHz Tualatin Celeron's available to me for over a week now... didnt even know they existed until i saw them on my price list. Cant wait to get one in and see how she runs (nobody wants to spend the money for the PIII Tualatins yet, we have a really small population)
