Intel dual-core x86 CPUs

The Core brand refers to Intel's 32-bit mobile dual-core x86 CPUs that derived from the Pentium M branded processors. The processor family used a more advanced version of the Intel P6 microarchitecture. It emerged in parallel with the NetBurst (Intel P68) microarchitecture of the Pentium 4 brand, and was a precursor of the 64-bit Core microarchitecture of Core 2 branded CPUs.

The Core brand comprised two branches:

1.The Duo (dual-core)
2.Solo (Duo with one disabled core, which replaced the Pentium M brand of single-core mobile processor).
