AMD had the first dual core server chip, and Intel had the first dual core desktop chip.

SUNNYVALE, CALIF. -- 8/31/2004 -- Today, AMD (NYSE: AMD) announces it is demonstrating the industry’s first x86 dual-core processor. During demonstrations held at the company’s Austin facilities, AMD is showing an HP ProLiant DL585 server powered by four dual-core AMD Opteron™ processors manufactured on 90nm silicon-on-insulator process technology.

In April 2005, Intel's biggest rival, AMD, had x86 dual-core microprocessors intended for workstations and servers on the market, and was poised to launch a comparable product intended for desktop computers. As a response, Intel developed Smithfield, the first x86 dual-core microprocessor intended for desktop computers, beating AMD's Athlon 64 X2 by a few weeks.

Thats your answer, but in fairness, they were both made up of two single core processors, kind of seamed together.

TrainRain Actually, it was IBM who first developed a multi-core processor.

"The POWER4 (developed by IBM) was a multicore microprocessor, with two cores on a single die, the first non-embedded microprocessor to do so."

Deathclaw I can't remember who was the first to release dual core processor, intel or amd?
And i'm amazed at my poor googling and internet not giving me info i'm looking for.
