    Q6600 Quad or Dual cpu?

    Preech1980

      Recently  i had a discussion with a friend regarding his intel CPU. He claims his Core2 Q6600 only has 2 cores, and that this is some kind of special early release of the q6600. I was under the impression that the Q in Q6600 was an abbrevation of the word Quad and thus the CPU would always be a Quad Core and not a Dual.

       

      Can anyone officially tell if there has ever been a Q6600 dual core cpu on the market? And if yes, why it was named so.

       

      And on a side note, if there never was a q6600 dual core, what would make him believe so? Why are 2 cores disabled?
