Default Re: Core 2 vs dual core

i do believe the pentium dual core is not before the core 2 duo it was in fact released after

as for the pentium D i think they rushed trying to get dual cores out before amd and screwed up the architecture not developing a new one simply putting 2 pentium 4's together which resulted in a lot of heat

The Pentium Dual cores came out after the C2D. It was designed to get people out of the Pentium D, and into a better, dual-core solution while still keeping end user costs low.
