Intel dual core CPU ‘a hack’

Intel have announced a dual core Pentium CPU to compete with AMD’s Opteron and Athlon64 dual core chips, but have admitted it is a ‘hack’.

From a marketing perspective this seems like a dangerous thing to admit – I don’t think too many people are going to be interested on spending the big bucks on a new CPU that is basically just ‘a hack’ – apparently this new CPU is more like two Pentiums bolted together. I wonder how hot that will get?
