this is the foodchain.
pentium D<AMDx2<AM2<asdgafdGH<ADhadfh<ADfgafG<core 2 duo. lol
core 2 duo would deliver much better game performance.

I always thought Pentium D was second to Core 2 Duo. Guess not?

Yeah, I wondered this actually when I saw an advertisements for laptops running Pentium D. Since it was still a dual core archetecture, I was wondering what it was like compared with the new Conroes.

Nah, the Smithfield core was true dual-core like the Athlon X2's were. The Presler was the "half-assed" dual-processor core, since it was two seperate CPU cores linked by the FSB; whereas true dual-core is two full processing cores in one die.
