"Dual Core" is a generic term for any CPU that has two cores. It applies to both AMD and Intel CPUs.

It even applies to cellphones that have a CPU with two cores. An example would be the Motorola 1.0Ghz Tegra 2 Dual Core CPU.

Intel had the Pentium/Celeron Dual Cores for lower end markets, just a watered down version of the Core2 Duo.

Core2 Duo was the more high end chip in the core2 microarchitecture.
