Anand Lal Shimpi brengt ons een review van de Intel Pentium III 933EB processor die zo rond deze tijd gelanceerd wordt. De core van deze CPU is net als de 1GHz variant gebaseerd op de nieuwe cB0 stepping waardoor hij waarschijnlijk de 1000MHz wel zal trekken. Qua performance scaled de 933MHz versie zoals verwacht mooi tussen de 866 en de 1GHz P3:
The Pentium III 933 is actually a pretty interesting chip in that it should easily be able to make it up to 1GHz and beyond, whereas the 866 wasn't a guarantee since it was based on the old stepping of the Coppermine core (cA2). The Pentium III 933 is essentially a 1GHz part, it operates at the same core voltage, uses the same stepping of the core and should easily be able to hit that 66MHz higher clock frequency. But if you're in the overclocking mood, you'll probably want to opt for a slower Pentium III and take that up to a higher point, such as the Pentium III 600E (100MHz FSB) and push it to 800EB (133MHz FSB). The problem with overclocking something like the 933 is that you can only really successfully do so if you have FSB settings available that lie between 133MHz and 150MHz due to its fairly high clock multiplier (7.0x).
[...] The Pentium IIIs are finally more available than they were a couple of months ago. As of the time of publication you can actually find Pentium III 933 chips online, although at only a few places and at a pretty hefty pricetag. The main point is that you can actually get all the Pentium IIIs (with the exception of the 1GHz parts) if you're really interested in picking one up. While that may sound like a silly thing to boast about, just a couple of months ago picking up anything faster than a 733MHz part was almost unheard of.
