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.

For reference, Intel's Pentium D, and AMD's Athlon 64 x2 were both released May 2005.

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."

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.
