Intel query

Can someone please tell me the difference between Intel Pentium Viv with dual-core processing, and the Intel Core 2 Duo which is the latest technolody from Intel if I'm not mistaken.

Only asking because I've noticed this on my new Gateway

it is something to do with playing media on the pc and works just the same on all dual core intel pc's with the right components.

The first has two cores on the same die sharing such things as level 2 cache whereas the Core 2 duo has separate dies for each core and is more akin to two separate processors..

Thanks to you both. I think i've got the gist of that.
