  Pentium Pro - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It was this, along with the Pentium Pro's high price, due in part to the full speed on-die L2 cache, that caused the rather lackluster reception for the chip among many home PC enthusiasts, given the dominance at the time of the 16-bit Windows 3.1x and MS-DOS.
Pentium Pro clock speeds were 150, 166, 180 or 200 MHz with a 60 or 66 MHz external bus clock.
The Pentium Pro was succeeded by the Pentium II, which was essentially a cost-reduced and re-branded Pentium Pro with the addition of MMX and enhanced 16-bit code performance.

 Pentium II - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Pentium II is an x86 architecture microprocessor by Intel, introduced on May 7, 1997.
The original Klamath Pentium II ran at 233 and 266 MHz, were produced in a 0.35 µm fabrication process and produced (for that time) an incredible amount of heat.
Unlike previous Intel processors such as the Pentium and Pentium Pro, the Pentium II was packaged in a slot-based form-factor rather than a socket.

 Pentium 4 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Pentium 4 is a seventh-generation x86 architecture microprocessor produced by Intel and is their first all-new CPU design, called the NetBurst architecture, since the Pentium Pro of 1995.
The original Pentium 4, codenamed "Willamette", ran at 1.4 and 1.5 GHz and was released in November 2000 on the Socket 423 platform.
Pentium 4 processors use a frontside bus that transfers data on all four corners of the square wave (rising, peak, falling, and trough), instead of on one corner as older processors do, so the actual square wave that controls the clock runs at one-quarter of the FSB frequency.

 Intel Pentium Pro - The Processor Emporium (UK)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The cache on the Pentium Pro ran at full clock speed, and was incorporated directly onto the processor package which made it exterely expensive to manufacture.
The Pentium Pro was far better at processing 32 bit code as used in Windows NT than the 16 bit code of Windows 95/98.
The Pentium Pro could also be used in multi-processor systems of up to 4 processors which made it especially suitable for NT servers.

 apcmag.com: Pentium Pro-gression   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
When we last looked at Pentium Pros in April, the technology was in its nascent stages and very few companies could actually provide us with machines based on Intel's sixth generation processor technology.
Hindered by both their high early asking price and the fact that a great deal of software still uses a 16-bit address size (the Pentium Pro is optimised for 32-bit code), the uptake of the new processor in the year since its launch has been less than spectacular.
The wide availability of Pentium Pro processors with higher clock speeds and the relatively low premium associated with the Pentium Pro 200MHz still make it an attractive option for Windows 95 users, however, as well as an excellent choice for 'future-proofing' a machine against upgrades to full 32-bit operating systems.

An early lesson we learned is that the memory bandwidth of the Pentium Pro Natoma chipset is not sufficient to support more than two fast ethernet ports (about 20 Mbytes/sec of message traffic) per node when using TCP or UDP protocols, due to copies of data from the kernel to user space.
Through the use of the Pentium Pro hardware performance monitors, we have directly counted the actual number of floating point operations involved while the code was running.

 Define Pentium - a Whatis.com definition
The Pentium Pro, released in 1995, was designed for PC servers and workstation that needed to serve multiple users or needed the speed required for graphics-intensive applications.
Among the Pentium II's features are a 512 KB (kilobyte) level-two (L1 and L2) memory cache and a 32 KB L1 and L2 cache, twice that of the Pentium Pro processor.
The latest Pentium II's are Celeron, a low-end Pentium without the L2 cache, and Xeon, a high-end Pentium that replaces the Pentium Pro for enterprise server and workstation computers.

 Intel Pentium II ("Klamath")
In fact, the Pentium II is very much an evolutionary step from the Pentium Pro, which only served to increase the speculation that one of Intel's primary goals in making the PII was to get away from the expensive integrated level 2 cache that was so hard to manufacture on the PPro.
Architecturally, the Pentium II is not very different from the Pentium Pro, with a similar x86 emulation core and most of the same features.
The secondary cache on the Pentium II is still transactional, and maintains the independent backside bus of the Pentium Pro.

 Pentium Pro's last gasp | CNET News.com
The Pentium Pro, introduced back in October 1995 as a chip for expensive PC workstation and server computers, never really came down from this lofty market niche to the average PC user's desktop.
In its last iteration, the Pentium Pro will appeal only to the highest of high-end server users before it is finally completely replaced by the equally capable but cheaper Pentium II processor in 1998.
But the death knell for the Pentium Pro is rooted in the fact that the Pentium II is already much like a Pentium Pro in that it has the same basic internal architecture.

 [No title]
I'll never forget when Intel first announced that the name for the successor to the 486 would be "Pentium." I and most of my fellow computer nerds thought the name was silly and not suitably geeky.
In a nutshell, the answer is that the Pentium brand name, having somehow made the transition from the original Pentium architecture to the radically different Pentium Pro (or P6) architecture, became synonymous with the most successful desktop microprocessor architecture of all time — in fact, in its heyday "Pentium" became virtually synonymous with "PC."
The original Pentium is an extremely modest design by today's standards, and when it was introduced in 1993 it wasn't exactly a blockbuster by the standards of its RISC contemporaries, either.
