win 98 versus PIII
I have installed a PIII 450MHz CPU on a PIII motherboard. My PC is running Windows 98.On checking the system components under the accessories menu. it is showing genuine Intel Pentium II instead of III.
Is this a Windows 98 bug.
Is there anyone out there who has an answer.

When the original version of windows came out, Microsoft had not beed informed what the processor after the PII would be named. So they just said, "Hmmmm... We're microsoft, we don't have to push our dateline back to wait for this... It would cost us a hudredth of a percent of oru profit.. We'll just call it a PII." While the instructions for the PIII are benefitting your system (you might not notice unless you use newer programs), you just need to update, both your bios and windows. 98 second edition works better with a PIII, supposedly.
yes, windows 98 second edition correctly recognizes the p3 (i know - im using it). but while the original version of win98 does not correctly recognize the p3 you do not lose any performace at all
Thank you very much everyone for your assistance.
