Intel rolls out 900MHz 4, 8-way PIII Xeon

Author: JT Smith

From The Register: "Intel shipped its 900MHz Pentium III Xeon server CPU, the last to be based on the
0.18 micron PIII core before the Xeon family switches over to the Pentium 4 core, at
least in the high-end server biz.

The 900MHz part, like its 700MHz predecessor, ships with 2MB of on-die L2
cache, and is aimed at four- and eight-way multiprocessor servers. Unlike the
previous chip, there's no 1MB on-die L2 option. Both parts support a 100MHz
frontside bus."
