Pentinum-D is p4 based.  this style of intel dual core architecture have 
two cores sharing the same fsb.  intel has about two or three other 
designs in the works.  they will be coming out w/ a p3-based centrino 
single socket/dual core platform which seems cool (in technology and 
wattage) but that will require another motherboard sytle, etc.

right now (or maybe until intel really changes their game plan) your 
better off w/ the athlon64 or opteron dual cores (which will support quad 
cores in 2007).  the amd architecture really shines when accessing memory 
in dual core configs.
