Excuse me? Considering the PPro is significantly older than the PII, it
would be hard for it to be the child. Further...the PPro has faster cache
(clock == core, as opposed to clock == 1/2 core on PII) and on some versions
more cache than the PII (up to 1MB). Clock for clock, the PPro is a better
chip than the PII, it simply never got clocked up as high as the PII (for a
number of mostly economic reasons).
