Comparison of Intel Sixth-Generation Chipsets
The table below contrasts Intel's Pentium Pro and Pentium II chipsets, in order to demonstrate their most important features and performance factors. The topic headers are based on the topics in the Chipset Functions and Features section.
Note: Pentium Pro and
Pentium II CPUs have their secondary cache integrated into the CPU package. Therefore,
cache characteristics for these machines are not dependent on the chipset and I have not
included a group of chipset cache attributes below.
Note: System timings
stated are "optimal" and depend on support from appropriately fast memory.
Otherwise you may need to slow down the timing in your BIOS setup. See the section on memory system timing for more
