What types of Pentium III are Coppermine?

Simple, no? (Well, perhaps not). in any case, the "Authentic Coppermine" would be the models EB, or in any case the EB and also the E; the B are ancient Pentium III but with a more rapid bus, a progress that, isolated, scarcely fond of the yield.
On the other hand, three models of Pentium III have presented before themselves for portable, to 400, 450 and 500 MHz, that although they do not continue the explained nomenclature above we might consider to be Coppermines "E", since they have 256 KB of cache memory L2 integrated but they use a 100 MHz bus. And of course, his connectors are completely different, more compact, for being destined for portable teams.
