The sunpci <penguin> is an amd 400mhz processor only.

The sun systems handbook on sunsolve confirms this.

If someone is promoting the Celeron 400mhz as the chip on the sunpci
<penquin>, they are not referring to the retail version.

The sunpci ii (2) and the sunpci iii (3) are also listed in the sun
systems handbook.

Err, were there ever 400mhz celeron boards released?  I keep seeing
people mention 400mhz celeron in conjunction with SunPCI Is, and I'm now
having a sinking sensation that I may have really bought a AMD k6-2
instead of the Celeron 400 I though I was getting.  Then again, I guess
it doesn't really make all that much difference.  Both will probably be
slower than I really like for my task (but I didn't have the budget for
