Pentium II Clock Speeds[edit]

This needs to be fixed up. The Pentium II desktop version only ran up to 450MHz, and the mobile to 466MHz. See [1]. - MSTCrow 01:21, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

The article indicates the fastest desktop PII to be 450 MHz. However, everything outside Sandpile that I can find indicates the Mobiles (including Dixon) never made it past 400 MHz. This is slower than the 500 MHz indicated in the article and the 466 MHz indicated on Sandpile. Intel, for instance, makes no mention of anything above 400 MHz. Other sites support this. In any case, I am moving the disputed tag to the Dixon section. — Aluvus t/c 02:06, 5 November 2006 (UTC)
It looks like Sandpile counted both mobile PII and mobile Celeron in their listing ( 233, 266, 300, 333, 366, 400, 433, 466 MHz (Mobile)), all Intel docs say mobile PII up to 400 MHz and mobile Celeron up to 466 MHz. They also have 0.28µ as manufacturing tech for Klamath PII but Intel docs show 0.35µ --Denniss 14:05, 6 November 2006 (UTC)
Just adding that Pentium-II-based Celeron (Mendocino) desktop CPUs were available with up to 533MHz. -- Alexey Topol (talk) 15:34, 12 February 2014 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Intel Pentium II Processor Logo.svg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Intel Pentium II Processor Logo.svg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Pentium 2[edit]

I want more information about Pentium 2 Introduction,advantages,disadvantages,conclusion —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:36, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

The article desperately needs analysis and a placement within historical context. The Pentium II 450MHz (512MB RAM) was the first Intel device which surpassed the Sun SPARC and drew level with the DEC Alpha. Those CPUs shipped in workstations which sold for a much higher price. So the last models of the Pentium II mark the beginning of Windows and Linux on Intel as a serious rival to Sun, DEC and HP's UNIX desktop equipment. The Pentium III Coppermine would later allow Intel servers to rival all but the most expensive of UNIX servers, which in turn made Linux the obvious upgrade path for those UNIX servers.

PII Mobile bus speed[edit]

There is no 100MHz bus models on the Intel Processorfinder: —Preceding unsigned comment added by Alecv (talkcontribs) 19:50, 20 February 2008 (UTC)


It would be nice if this article had more information about what the Pentium II was used with. What kind of memory was it used with? Which expansion buses? Chipsets? etc. --Pascal666 (talk) 21:35, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Is this article un-sourced PR fluff?[edit]

The tone of the article doesn't seem neutral. It could use more citations, and it doesn't seem to cover the 512MB limitation of earlier Pentium 2s. The predecessor to the pentium 2, the pentium pro, could use as much as 256,000 MB of RAM, while early pentium 2s could only use two-tenths of one percent of that. (talk) 21:53, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
