    Hey. Someone please turn on the light !!!

    Someone please explain me why to get a 250$ PIII 450 cpu or even higher when with L2 cache runnig to half speed when U can get a 80$ celeron @ 366-400 that most times work werry well at 500+ speeds w L2 cache running at full speed, not to mention the perfomance comparing to piii 450...
    Thank you

    Thats a wonderful question. I've thought about the half-speed cache, too. Maybe Intel should have gone with the full speed cache on the P3- just like the Celeron, only with 256k. I can't explain why the P3 cache can't keep up, even running at half-speed.

    Heh
    In other words... They just needed a reason to set the price for the coppermine higher. They needed an "improvement". ;-)

    Their website said "Requires Linux Distrubution based on kernel 2.4.2 or better," so I went and installed FreeBSD.
