    Processor Specification/Identification


      I have an application to install on several user machines that requires the following processor capability:


           Intel Pentium 4 or AMD Athlon dual-core processor, 1.6 GHz or higher with SSE2 technology


      I've asked my users to go to system information to determine what processor they have, but not sure how this helps:



      x86 Family 6 Model 15 Stepping 11 GenuineIntel  2193 Mhz
      x86 Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 10 GenuineIntel ~2660 Mhz



      Is there a mapping (Family X, Model XX) that tells me what kind of processor this is?  I've been searching around and discovered that Family 6 Model 15 is an Intel Dual Core.  My questions are:


      1. Do the two processors listed above meet or exceed a Pentium 4 specification?

      2. Is an Intel Dual Core as fast/faster than an Pentium 4?
