It's me again with another doozy clue!

Im not sure if this is a good or bad thing, but my System Properties says:

Intel Pentium III processor
448 MHz
256 MB of RAM

But when I was about to install a new Radeon 9200 PCI card, I looked up my AGP Controller ad it says:


Intel 8244**** Pentium(r) II Processor to AGP Controller.

Is this wrong? and if so....Is this bad for my computer? AND how do I fix it? PLEASE someone tell me I'm going crazy for nothing.

Thank U
:help: [/b]

a pIII is 450 MHZ and above to 1.2 or three i think. The processor always does'nt run at the exact speed. One of my computers is a p4 2.4 and it runs at 2423 which is 23 mhz over 2.4 so they just round to the nearist number so what i would asume/sure is happing is that that agp controler is giving the exact mhz not the rounded. So it is nothing to worry about.

I think he is talking about the difference between

Pentium II

and...

Pentium III.


lol.

It should be fine, just make sure your my computer properties list the correct info. Otherwise you have a different processor. That would be funny.

PII = 450 1.2 or 1.3 GHZ
pII = 233 - 400

PIII = 450mhz 1.4ghz
PII = 233mhz - 400mhz
Those are the Cut Off Between the P II and P III

WOW I was reading my A+ Certification book and it says PIII goes to a 1.3GHz then the p4 goes from 1.4GHz and up I even found a web page that proves this second paragraph and the 3rd and 4th line.

I guess everyone has their own opinion on where the range starts at on p4. The book says p4 starts at 1.4 and the Intel web site says it starts at 1.3 I give up on this topic. Plus it is too far off the subject of the question.
