Q: What is a Core Duo processor?A: 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. This results in enhanced performance, responsiveness and power savings.
You can simultaneously run multiple applications - such as graphics-intensive games or number-crunching programs while downloading music or running virus-scanning security programs in the background. The processor is able to transfer power only to those areas of the processor that need it, enabling notebooks with improved battery life. The Intel® Core Duo processor delivers enhanced performance on floating point-intensive applications such as CAD tools, 3D and 2D modeling, video editing, digital music, digital photography and gaming.
