Soothe... I was trying to see your thoughts on PPros,
keep in mind that PII and PIII are based on P6 which is PPro's
original design. Also PPro boards relied on 72pin simms which is not
that great of a bandwith and capacity, SDRAM has best density and
good bandwith, also still good cost even cost has recently risen.

That the reason for later machines w/ PII/PIII, Xeon and it's
relatives P4 northwoods /w DDR (not the 1st generation P4), athlons.
still stands

If ones wishs newer "PPro" look at Xeons, early ones had very large
L2 cache clocked at 1:1 cpu:L2 clock. Most of my scorn lies w/
PPro's chipsets more than CPU themselves. Same w/ celeron. It is
okay but...

For now, let it rest after few turns on that list okay?
