Maybe I'm confused by the marketing, but I think those CPUs do exist.
According to New Egg the Pentium D 830 and the Pentium D 930 both are
dual core Pentiums that run at 3Ghz. It also specifically says these
processors don't support hyper threading, so I believe they really have
two cores. Maybe you are thinking he was talking about a 3Ghz Core
