Cyrix III with new clock rates
The chipset and processor manufacturer VIA has expanded the Cyrix III processor family to include two new models with a clock frequency of 650 and 667MHz. The 650MHz variant runs with a Front Side Bus (FSB) of 100MHz and is supposed to cost only 55 US dollars for 1000 pieces.
In contrast, the new 667MHz Cyrix III will have an external clock of 133MHz operated and costs $ 60 to purchase. The new models are also primarily intended for low-cost and slow entry-level systems and are operated in socket 370.
