Intel has confirmed the Pentium II/450MHz part has limited availability, signalling the end of the line for the entire PII family.
The chip giant has relentlessly pushed the Pentium III family into the PII's place during the course of this year, and that process will be complete within the next few weeks, according to reliable sources.
An Intel representative said: "We've said that the Pentium III shipments will cross over in Q3." That is likely to be the closest we're going to get to a confirmation until it happens.
Intel is continuing to develop the Celeron family, but there is some Confusion over when the 100MHz front side bus (FSB) version arrives. According to a local UK Intel representative, this will "definitely not" arrive until next year.
