Pentium Dual-Core processor family is the latest Pentium-branded family of budget dual-core desktop and mobile microprocessors. The family was introduced in the first quarter of 2007 and currently (Feb 2010) includes 15 desktop and 15 mobile microprocessors. With the exception of one recently released Nehalem Pentium processor, all Pentium Dual-Cores are based on Core micro-architecture, and include the following Core features:
All desktop and mobile Pentiums have smaller size of level 2 cache, and run at lower core and bus frequencies than Core 2 Duo microprocessors released at the same time frame. Earlier desktop CPUs, as well as all mobile Pentium Dual-Core processors don't support Virtualization technology.
"Dual-Core" part was eventually dropped from the family name, and the family is currently branded as "Pentium". Mobile Pentium dual-core processors are currently branded as "Pentium Mobile".
