Intel show to tackle debate over dual-core chips

At an Intel-sponsored developer conference next week, one of the big debates will be, “what exactly is a dual-core processor?”

The Santa Clara, Calif.-based chipmaker will provide details about a host of processors at the three-day Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco. On tap: a discussion of chips for servers, notebooks and desktops coming out later this year that will contain two computing cores instead of just one. Adding cores lets computers handle multiple applications simultaneously and complete time-consuming tasks more rapidly.”
