The Pentium II did have 512 KiB L2 cache, not 256. Never the less, you are absolutely right that in a lot of applications, the Celeron "450A" was faster than the PII
You're right. All the Klamath, Deschutes Pentium II and Katmai Pentium III have 512 kB half speed L2 cache. They need Slot 1 and there are no Socket 370 versions avaiable.
I've messed it up with the Coppermine Pentium III's which had 256 kB L2 cache, on die and full speed. They do not need Slot 1 and they exist in both Socket 370 and Slot 1 variants.
I fixed it.
