two completely different chips. both run x86 instruction sets, but their implementation is different. Generally speaking, core2duo is the better chip.
That's sort of like asking what the difference is between Pentium 3 and Pentium 4.
The back-story on core 2 duo, is that it was a design group in Intels Israeli branch that did the mobile cpu architecture.
Well Intel was getting their asses handed to them by AMD and decided that hotter/higher clock speeds weren't the way to go anymore.
Well someone with a working brain in the US branch noticed how efficient the architecture was on the mobile cpu's, so he pulled the lead designer out of the Israeli project and brought him here to work his efficiency magic on the new line which became core 2 duo.
most people don't understand that and just buy ghz.
Core 2 Duo is newer and better. It also uses a different socket, so you can only use it if you have a compatible motherboard.
Those crazy Jews!
Some clever summsabitches!
The Pentium Dual-Core is based on the Allendale core, which is also used in the Core 2 Duo E4x00 line (not the E6xx0 line). It has limited overclockability when compared to other Core 2 Duo's because it is picked from the bottom of the binned pile.
NOT the Pentium D Dual Core. Intel Pentium Dual Core models are the E2140, E2160, and soon E2180.
