Cores1More cores means more threads and therefore more processes can be run simultaneously
Speed0.4GHzClock frequency indicates processor speed, but is only reliable in comparisons between CPUs of the same family
CodenameDeschutesThe code name given by the manufacturers
Release Date15 Apr 1998 The more recent the release, the more likely the CPU will receive up-to-date manufacturer support
TDP243WThe lower the TDP, the less power the CPU requires to run and thus the more efficient it is and the less heat it creates
L1 Cache32KBThe bigger the L1 cache, the more data can be stored for lightning CPU access to priority processes (though a bigger cache means a higher latency
L2 Cache512KBAfter L1 cache, L2 is utilized for slower (but still very fast) data access
Lithography250nmThe smaller the lithographic technology used, the less power is required to run the CPU, and the less heat is created during intense use
CPU SocketSlot 1/SC242The motherboard socket and CPU socket should match to indicate the CPU is compatible with the motherboard and will fit into it
Unlocked MultipliernoAn unlocked clock multiplier means you can adjust the multiplier for an overclocking speed boost

Pentium II 400MHz compatibility review

Overall, the Intel Pentium II 400MHz has poor performance. Its 1 core clocked at 0.4 GHz provides mediocre processing speeds and with only a single core, it will never match up to modern competitors.

The CPU is now over 23 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. This processor will be dwarfed in performance by its modern counterparts, and will likely have very little support from Intel.

Created with lithographic technology sized at 250 nanometers, the Pentium II 400MHz is not efficient at all by modern standards, and with a Thermal Design Power of 243W, the poor efficiency of its physical build is matched by the huge amount of power that is necessary to run it.
