Hi again,

it is the 300MHz version.

Considering the high price of the Xeon the results are not that
convincing w.r.t. PII. Personally I would by an Xeon only in a
multiprocessor system. There it is MUCH better than an Pentium II. But
the chip sets for the Xeon are too new to make an ultimate statement.
