Dual Core Vs Core 2 Duo, both are dual core processors.

Dual core is simply a generic term referring to any processor package with two independent execution cores in one physical package.

The Core 2 Duo is Intel's second generation of dual-core (hence, Core 2) processor made for desktops and laptops designed from the ground up to be fast while not consuming nearly as much power as previous CPUs. It's same architecture of using two cores on a single die, which, put simply, gives two chips in one package. Running at lower speeds than the old Pentium line, the Core Duo conserves substantial power vs. ratcheting up clock speed while offering what was, at the time, record-breaking performance.
