I never saw a 1GHz/100 at all, I've only seen their existence on the Intel site which *used* to have a conveniently searchable database of all their CPUs.
They do exist - I have one, I got from some scrap lot ... will post an image later - can't get that to work from my phone for some reason ...
That's a great CPU to have handy for Slot-1 boards. I wasn't meaning to imply they don't exist, just that they're rare.

About 10 years ago was about 100 or so selling for a fair price on ebay, caused quite the stir here in vogons.
Stupidly I didn't get one as purchased mine also on ebay for £16.00 the year before and didn't think I'd ever need another.
Also regret passing on the cheap Vortex 2 cards and NEC XR385 Midi boards from around the same time. Which is why when opportunities come up I always take advantage of them now.
I must have missed that. A 1GHz/100 would have been handy when I was running a Slot-1 file server - Gigabit ethernet is CPU demanding and I recall it getting throttled somewhat by the 600MHz I used.
The server board I was using was incredibly picky about CPUs and I could never got it to work with a slocket.
I also regret those MIDI boards, I think I was just starting to visit the forum when that came up. For whatever reason I didn't buy one - I guess it's easier to pass on stuff when you aren't anticipating how less available it will be in the future.
