Based on dual-core technology, Intel Core Duo rewrites the rules of computing and delivers breakthrough performance with amazingly low power consumption. The Intel Core Duo processor is at the heart of Intel's premium desktop and notebook platforms: Intel Viiv Technology, and Intel Centrino Duo mobile technology, respectively. The Intel Core Duo processor includes two mobile-optimized execution cores in a single processor. This design enables execution of parallel threads or applications on separate cores with dedicated CPU resources. The results are outstanding performance and greater system response when running multiple demanding applications simultaneously. Performance on multithreaded applications is also enhanced.
