Gamespot heeft een simpel reviewtje rond de nieuwe PIII-600 gebouwd. Benchmarks of overklok info kom je er niet in tegen, alleen wat oppervlak gebabbel over game performance:
Maybe I'm just getting a little jaded, or maybe it's because I've seen what a 650MHz Athlon can do. But when the 600MHz Pentium III arrived, I couldn't muster a lot of excitement initially. Once I got going with a few games, that attitude changed. I do a lot of game playing on the 500MHz Pentium III test bed; with a TNT2 Ultra or Voodoo3 card, I generally get pretty snappy performance. Every now and then, it will bog down in some games, like Heavy Gear II. After running through the 600MHz Pentium III, all my problems vanished. Well, they disappeared until I ratcheted up the resolution a little more.
