Was the Intel Core 2 the first Intel CPU to have multiple CPU cores?

No the Pentium Dual cores were, more specifically the Pentium D series processors. The Intel Processor comparison utility show that the Intel® Pentium® D Processor 805 was released Q1 2005 and it was the first true Dual core consumer CPU released by intel (There were P4's that included hyper-threading). The first Core2 I could find was the Core™2 Duo Processor E4300 which released in Q3 2006.
