I have been seeing all this new terminology lately about core solo processors, core duo processors, dual core processors, etc. Is there a difference? For example...a Pentium M chip is a core solo processor, right? A core duo processor is just a Pentium M Dual core chip. A Pentium D, is just a Dual Core Pentium 4 chip (basically), right?
When the Pentium D came out, it seemed simple, but then all the laptops started having these solo and duo terms associated with them, and I am not sure I understand it all. Can anyone make it a bit clearer?
