Kentsfield is a quad-core, if you need the extra 2 cores then go for it...

Though most say its a quad-core but remember when Pentium D's were the intel mainstream? "2 Pentium 4's bolted together" so its not a real dual-core, same here with Kentsfield, 2 conroes bolted together. That should stir up some comments.
