The next revision of the Athlon was basically a .18-micron version of the old one (Orion core, AKA "A Athlon", AKA "K75"). It ran from 500MHz all the way to 1GHz, and like the Pluto it had a 100MHz front side bus and didn't support the SSE instruction set. All of them had 512KB of L2 cache that didn't run at full speed, but the speed varied from model to model; the L2 cache on 500~700MHz Orions ran at 1/2 speed, 750~850MHz Orions' L2 cache ran at 2/5 speed (eww), and 900MHz~1GHz Orions' L2 cache ran at 1/3 speed (ewwww). All of them were Slot A too, I think.
The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
