Pentium II Enhanced or Pentium III?

Back in December, there were reports that Intel's next-generation Pentium II, which will include the "Katmai" MMX-2 instruction set, would be named "Pentium II Enhanced." Now it's beginning to look like Intel might run with the name "Pentium III" instead. And, supposedly, the company will use a high-priced SuperBowl ad to introduce the new chip to the world.

Thanks to Michael Noonan for the tip
