Pentium Pro
Last modified: Tuesday, November 25, 1997 

The Pentium Pro is Intel's sixth generation microprocessor (P6). Although, it shares the same name as the fifth-generation Pentium microprocessor, the Pentium Pro is architecturally quite different. Thanks to modern design techniques, including superpipelining, dynamic execution, and on-chip L2 cache, the Pentium Pro can perform at nearly twice the speed of previous Pentium microprocessors.
