Intel Core

The Core brand refers to intel's 32bit mobile dualcore 86 that derived from the processors. The processor family used a more advanced version of the pentiumintel p6 monoarchitecture It emerged in parallel with the (Intel P68) microarchitecture of the pentium 4 brand, and was a precursor of the Core 2 branded CPUs. The Core brand comprised two branches: the Duo (dual-core) and Solo (Duo with one disabled core, which replaced the Pentium M brand of single-core mobile processor).

The Core brand was launched on jan 5th 2006 by the release - Intel's first mobile (low-power) processor. Its dual-core layout closely resembled two interconnected pentium branded CPUs packaged as a single (piece) silicon chip ((IC) Hence, the 32-bit microarchitecture of Core branded CPUs - contrary to its name - had more in common with Pentium M branded CPUs than with the subsequent of branded CPUs. Despite a major effort by intel starting January 2006, some computers with the Yonah core continued to be marked as Pentium M.

The Core Duo is also famous for being the first Intel processor to ever be used in Apple Macintosh computers. Core Duo signified the beginning of Apple's shift to Intel processors across their entire line.

In 2007, intel began branding the Yonah core intended for mainstream mobile computers as pentium dual-core. These are not to be confused with the desktop CPUs also branded as Pentium Dual-Core.
