Does anybody have a better picture of what this 'line' is? I.E. Intel
200, 300, 350? AMD 300, 450? Would this be Pentium vs. Pentium II?
Perhaps the K6-2 series on the AMD side?
Just trying to get a better idea so I don't get any surprises. I do have
one old Proliant 3000 with a 300 processor hanging around and doing a
fine job of what it is used for. One would never know it is not a latest
greatest 8 processor xeon server for what it does. :) It simply needs to
be reliable and it is VERY reliable.
