  1. all different generations you have them in the right order oldest to newest. dual core being the oldest and weakest performer and core i5 depending on the model could of also been a dual core. marketing mostly.
  2. Best answer
    Dual Core, Core 2 Duo, and the Core i3 are all dual-core CPUs. The i3 supports hyper-threading though. The Core i5 is a quad-core CPU. And I don't know what the Core i6 is. Maybe you live in the future.

    The main difference between the three dual-cores is IPC (instructions per clock cycle). You can't directly compare CPU speed. A CPU may run at 2.00 GHz and another at 3.4 GHz, but the former may have 10 IPC and the other may have 5 IPC. So the former performs faster at lower clock speed than the latter.
  3. im pretty sure he was referring to the model number the core i5 650 was a dual core part http://ark.intel.com/products/43546/
  4. Oh oops. Then ignore what I said about i5 and i6.
  5. toms hardware has a cpu hierarchy page the 650 should be listed there they were in line with quad core parts on par with amd phenom 2 955
