It is a little grey....
model_6xx is a big clump of PII, Celeron, and PIII's. According to Intel 
docs the P6 family includes Pentium Pro, PentiumII, Celeron, and PIII 
processors. P4 and XEON are the first of the IA-32 family.

Yes I never liked how the model_6xx is all clumped togethor. I think 
they should be seperated by family/model. But that may be for another day...
