Dofference between intel(r) dual core and pentium(r) processor

Hello,
please tell me the difference between difference between Intel(r) dual core and Pentium(r) processor

More about dofference intel dual core pentium processor
  1. Pentium 1-4 - older single core chips
    Pentium M - older single core notebook chip (Core2 and I series based partially on this design)
    Pentium D - early dual core chip (two pentium 4s stuck together)
    Pentium Dual Core - based on Core2 chips-usually has less L2 memory on chip
    Pentium G series - based on I-series-again the economy version of I series

    Intel is confusing with naming

    and I never have been too sure what Nehalem exactly is.....
  2. Core2Duo is dual core-two chips in one CPU
    COre2Quad is quad core (4 chips in one CPU- really two Core2Duos stuck together)
    I series can be dual or quad core

    you will also hear about Hyperthreading
    that is a way of make one core or chip act like two

    started with Pentium 4
    and then brought back improved with the I-series

    I3- dual core with or without HT
    I5- usually quad core without HT
    I7- quad core usually with Hyper Threading

    Does that mean that a Pentium G is better than a Pentium Dual core ?
    and how a G series based in I series ?
  4. Pentium G is dual core and is the best Pentium range by a good bit. The one starting G with 3 digit numbers are second generation i3s without hyperthreading and lower clock speeds they perform nearly as well.
  5. Another question, Is pentium G better than the Core 2 duo processor ?
    and can it -the Pentium G- handle a GTS 450, GT 440, HD 5770 ?
    and what is difference between the 2 above and the I3 in handling the listed VGAs?
    thanks all!
