Intel A80C186CPICE Sample Back Side
An 80186 sample chip - I do not know the background of this chip, but it seems to be a development sample for the 80186. It has a lot more pin contacts than a regular i80186, maybe some of them are unused and some provide signals for testing and evaluation.

An engineering sample of an embedded version of the i80C186 in a PQFP package with 156 contacts. I don't have any information on the clock rate or if this version ever made it into production - if you got more information on this chip please contact me.

The Intel 386 SL Processor
In October 1990, Intel released the 80386SL, which was basically an 855,000 transistor version of the 386SX processor, with cache, bus, and memory controllers, ISA compatibility and power management circuitry. It added a special system management mode (SMM), in which the BIOS could more easily perform power management and other functions without requiring OS support. The 386SL was the first chip specifically made for portable computers.

The Intel Celeron Processor
The Celeron family is a line of budget x86 processors based on Pentium P6 designs. It is marketed by Intel as a second line to complement their more expensive but higher-performance Pentium CPUs. The first Celeron was introduced in April 1998 and based on the Pentium II. Later versions are based on the Pentium III and Pentium 4 designs.
 
The Celeron product concept was introduced by Intel in response to the company's loss of low-end market share, in particular to Cyrix's 6x86 and AMD's K6, but also to other competers such as the IDT Winchip. Intel's venerable Pentium MMX was no longer performance competitive and although a faster Pentium MMX would be cheap to make and technically straightforward, Intel preferred to move away from the industry standard Socket 7 platform (for which competitors made drop-in replacement CPUs) and produced a budget part that was pin-compatible with their high-end Pentium II product (Slot 1). For both technical and legal reasons, competitors had difficulty making Slot 1 parts.

The Intel Pentium III Xeon Processor
The Pentium III Xeon was introduced in March 1999. Early versions (Code named Tanner) where built in .25 micron technology and featured a 100MHz front side bus, 512KB to 2MB L2 off-die cache sizes and multiprocessor support for up to 8 CPUs. In October 1999 Intel introduced the 2nd generation PIII Xeon Cascades, using the same core as the .18 micron Pentium III Coppermine processor. As a result the Cascades has its 256KB on-die L2 cache running at full clock speed and all the other Coppermine features like Advanced Transfer Cache, Advanced System Buffering, support for 133 MHz front speed bus, SSE (Streaming SIMD Extensions), etc.
 
However, the introduction of Cascades had some severe drawbacks: The small 256KB L2 cache took back the Xeon's performance advance over the standard Pentium III and the 133MHz bus protocol did not support more than 2 CPUs in a system. In May 2000 Intel finally released a "large cache" version with up to 2MB (on-die) L2 cache and 100MHz front side bus, again supporting multiprocessing with up to 8 CPUs.
