What do you mean by a Pentium 133 MHz CPU?

I loved your learning guide on memory. But I am a little confused by your statement in the SDRAM section. I'm not sure what you meant by a Pentium 133 MHz CPU? I think it would have been clearer if you said Pentium III with a 133 MHz front side bus. What do you think?

I was referring to the Pentium I chip, which ran at 133Mhz. The original Pentium processors debuted at 60Mhz with a now famous FDIV bug. The later versions shipped at speeds of 75MHz - 200MHz.
