All Core 2 Duo are dual cores, but not all dual cores are Core 2 Duo :p . Are you referring to the "Pentium" dual cores?

"Dual Core" is a generic term used by both AMD and Intel.

Core 2 Duo (C2D) is the series of Intel CPUs which came after the Pentium D series and before the current Core i (i3, i5, i7) series.

A C2D is can also handle recording streaming video (Netflix etc), playing Bluray and HD videos, running a VM,
video editing with Sony Vegas and Power Director, playing Crysis Warhead at 1920x1080 on gamer settings
and much more

A pentium 4 or amd athlon single core are online browser computers LOL
