Dear CPU Scorekeeper

After looking through your list of CPU benchmarks, I've noticed that two Intel CPUs are missing:
bulletthe Pentium !!! B 800 MHz (133 MHz bus) and
bulletthe Pentium !!! 900 MHz.

As you pointed out, Intel's Pentium-III 800B Coppermine processor had been omitted from our CPU Scorecard, even though it has been listed on our Pentium-III stats page ever since it was introduced. Part of the reason this particular Coppermine flavour had not been scored is because there have been few direct comparisons between the standard Coppermine-800 (running on a 100MHz bus) and the Coppermine-800(E)B.

Your request, however, is our command. A bit more digging did find a good comparison at tecChannel (albeit in German). The Pentium-800B and its resultant CPU score are now listed.

Updated January 2002A Pentium-III processor running at 900 MHz was not originally released along with the Coppermine series introduced at speeds ranging from 850-1000 MHz. However, there is now Pentium-III 900, presumably for smaller, cool-running desktops. Its relative performance is now listed at The CPU Scorecard, too.
