As next year comes to a close, Intel President Paul Otellini said, more than half of the "high-performance" chips that Intel ships will have dual cores. That means the chips will enter at the high-end, coming in more expensive PCs at first. Otellini spoke at the company's spring analyst meeting in New York on Thursday.

Dual-core chips offer more performance than single-cores by adding more parallelism, or the ability to do multiple jobs simultaneously.
