Overclockin.com heeft een artikeltje gepost over de PIII-450 SL35D, waarvan het gerucht gaat dat het 'gedownmarkte' PIII-600's zijn, die door Intel op de markt zijn gezet om aan de vraag naar PIII-450's te voldoen:
So how did it do? Very well actually. I expected good things from this processor and it turns out I wasn't disappointed. Well, I won't hold you in suspense any longer.... The processor will run at 600MHz and 2.0V stable (L2 cache enabled) with no problems. However, it will also load Win98 and is able to run benchmarks with the L2 Cache disabled. I was hoping for the 621MHz mark, but such is life. Very difficult to complain about a processor that is rated at 450MHz running at 600MHz!!
To sum it up, it looks like this is even more evidence that the SL35D processors really are able to run some serious speeds. Admittedly, a sample size of one processor doesn't prove anything, but it does at least add more to the growing number of successful overclocks of the SL35D processors.
