Pentium D vs. Pentium 4

I currently have a P4-3.20 Mhz in my computer. I think it's a single core although XP's Task manager shows 2 CPUs. Sorry i don't know much about CPU hardware. I've heard that the Pentium D is a dual-core (?) processor. Is there a huge performance gain in the P-D processor over a P4?

If you go here:http://indigo.intel.com/compare_cpu/default.aspx?familyID=1&culture=en-US
You can compare your processor with the D Processors you're looking at.

Hope this helps!
