Short Take: Intel names processor

Intel has decided that the official name of the upcoming P6 processor will be the Pentium II processor. The chip was formerly known by its code name, Klamath. Intel says that this processor, like the Pentium Pro, will be aimed at business users. The Pentium processor, by contrast, is being sold primarily to the consumer market. The Pentium II is expected to run at 233 and 266 MHz when it hits the market, probably in the second quarter.
