Its all in the memory / caches.

I have a K6-II 500 and a K6-III 400

the K6-II can JUST about play DVDs.

the K6-III can breeze through them, despite being 100MHz 'slower'.

oh, and the K6-II can EASILY do 100MHz FSB, as long as the mobo can too.
in fact, high FSB speeds were the only way to get good preformance from
the K6-II and its much smaller cachen.
