    Xeon, Core-duo, Quad core!*?

    getaway

       

      Please can somebody explain what the difference is between a Xeon CPU (that has dual cores) and a Core-Duo? Also why clock speeds of new CPUs are half that of the previous generation?

       

       

      I have a dual 3.0GHz Xeon workstation, the latest models have dual 2.0GHz  Xeons - how is that better?! I'm rather confused and no doubt there is a simple explanation...
