Prosser speeds.

By richard ·
I need to know the speeds of pentium-class prossers; ie: a Pentium II clockes at [ what? ].
Starting with a pentium then I, II, III, IV.
If anyone knows.

Thank You.

Processor clock speeds vary.

Look to an online PC resource such as Tom's Hardware Guide, he has some really informative information for writing term papers etc.

this link will take you to Tom's Processor info that covers almost every processor for the last ten years or so.

The evolution of clock speed has not taken very long. As the microprocessor gets more transistors, MIPs, etc., the clockspeed has increased. The clock speed is currently clocked in KiloHertz (Hz), MegaHertz (MHz), and GigaHertz (GHz). The Intel 4004 processor was clocked at 108 KiloHertz, but now the Intel Pentium 4 processor is clocked at 2.3 GigaHertz. As technology progresses, so will the speed of mircoprocessors, and many of the specs of the microprocessor.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Clock speed is the speed at which the processor processes a number of pulses per second generated by an oscillator that sets the speed for the processor. It is also possible to boost the clock speed up slightly, or a lot, depending on your processor. Clock speed is determined by the speed at which the tester begins to get errors. The tester will keep increasing the clock speed until the processor begins to give them errors, then that is the speed that they mark the processor at.

dmiles missed the Pentium MMX series.
166Mhz to 233MHz

You can get details on current Intel products from Intel's web site.

Here is a good site for processor specifications:
