Zowel Thresh's FiringSquad als de Review Zone hebben een review in elkaar gedraaid van Intel's Pentium III 600MHz processor. Dit stukkie is gejat uit de review van FiringSquad, de review van de Review Zone vind je hier.
The P3-600 doesn't feature any big changes. It's based on the same .25 micron Katmai core as all the other P3 processors. It features 32KB of L1 cache running at the core clock speed and 512KB of external L2 cache running at 1/2 core clock speed. The processor is only available in the slot-1 compatible SECC2 form factor. Once Coppermine moves the L2 cache on-die, Intel will be able to manufacture the P3 in a 370-pin PPGA format. For now, the external L2 cache makes the slot-1 cartridge a necessity.
Basically, the P3-600 is a higher clocked version of the previous P3 processors. The only big difference we noticed was increased external L2 cache speed. To support the new 600MHz core clock speed, Intel had to up the cache speed to 300MHz. Of course, the processor still features all the SSE goodness that will let us through Intel's big blue door to the internet.
