Separate dies for the CPU and cache...

So Intel has been gluing chips together for longer than I thought...

Gonna do some retro build with them?

Well you really can't hold it against Intel for moving the L2 Cache closer to the core. This is before Slot 1.

That was really one of the main performance benefits of the Pentium Pro. That and the cache runs at the speed of the CPU instead of the FSB.
This is before Slot 1.
Interestingly, Intel backtracked on the speed of the L2 cache for Pentium 2 to half the speed of the CPU, but increased the amount to 512k from 128k.

There was also 256 KB option for Pentium Pro.
You're right, they never had a 128k version(I was thinking of the Celerons). They were all available in 256kb and 512kb versions. On the 200mhz there was also a 1024k model, but was prohibitively expensive! Had to go digging to remind myself. Thank You for bringing that up, fun trip down memory lane!
EDIT: Here's where I looked;

New (used) motherboard just arrived and tested, it's earmarked for the 771-to-775 mod to run a Xeon E5450 (incompatibilities...dammit!) X3363 and R9 270X. Quite a fan of the Ultra Durable motherboards I must say, they seem to last a long time.

Oh my, that is really very beautiful, especially if you're a Gigabyte fan.

EDIT; I hope you don't mind but I took the liberty of making a 2560x1440 version for use as a wallpaper. Cropped and resized a bit of course. If you're not ok with it, let me know and I'll re-edit this post to remove it. I think your picture is really very cool and thought it would be fun as a wallpaper.

Dude that's actually a great idea, go right ahead. I was looking for a new wallpaper background yesterday, I may change out some parts and snag a better piccy.

Cool, I'll leave it up for people to use. Question though, that board looks pristine, how did you get it so clean and mint looking?
I actually didn't clean it at all, it arrived in the mail that way. There was a bit of dust but you can't see it in the first picture. Definitely expected more wear and tear, that's for sure.
Anyway, I snapped a more clinical photo of it with some lighting to add a nice bit of color:

Looking forward to trying it out! I was gonna buy another P35-DS3P (already have one and it's worked great for 11 years), but then I saw the X38 and jumped on it.

I know what you mean, probably because the first pic was taken at midday and has warmer colors. It works well with the copper heatsinks.

Today I got a Intel Core i5-4590 (non-k) (4c/4t) home for my dad's rig to replace his Intel Core i5-4570T (2c/4t) and already watching TV online with his computer the cpu load dropped 25% just starting the stream :laugh:
