  VIA Cyrix III-750A MHz, Engineering Sample [flip chip]   []   []   [hide data]   [close image viewer]  
By 2001, the Samuel 2 (C5B) was released, this time just as the VIA C3. Samuel 2 ran at a higher clock speed and added a level 2 cache, required lower voltage and was also available in an Enhanced Ball Grid Array (EBGA) version. EBGA allowed the CPU to be mounted directly onto a motherboard without using Intel's costly Socket 370.
This is a Samuel 2 Engineering Sample, still marked Cyrix III and in PGA package.
