The fastest one produced was 200MHz. They had 150, 180 and 200MHz
versions, with cache sizes ranging from 256KB to 2MB. My primary
file server at the office is a Compaq Proliant 6000 with four of
the PPro/200 CPU's with 2MB cache each, and that thing just does
not give up. Although all my other servers are MUCH faster CPU-
wise, this box handles the Win2000 Advanced Server plus SFU plus
BackupExec very well.

Anyway, the answer would be '200'. They did project releases of
266 and 300MHz, but there ended up being early Pentium II's.
