Default CPU nomenclature

When looking at all the CPU pricing I can't tell which CPU's are dual and which are quads for Intel and AMD.

http://www.pricewatch.com/cpu/

Could someone please break down the CPU nomenclature... which are all the dual CPU's and which are all the quads (Intel and AMD), also what's the next level coming and will it arrive before xmas?

i.e. Is "core2 duo" 2 or 4 processors (2 x duo = 4?), is all AMD X2 = 2 processors?

Thanks,

rhuala
