What is Dual variant?!

Hey there,
I was going to DL an ISO and i saw this new thing:
archlinux-2010.05-core-dual.iso 
What's the Dual means here?
Dual Core May be?
I've searched but i couldn't find anything.
I have a 2.50 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor T9300, I used to install archlinux-2010.05-core-x86_64.iso , Should i change it to the new Dual One?
Thanks in advance.

I guess it means for both i686 & X86_64.

That's right, it's one media that lets you boot/install either i686 or X86_64.

Aaaaaah, for a second I was thinking that it was specially made for dual core processors or something, then I found this.
