It also depends on which generation of CPUs you're talking about. The previous generation i5s consisted of a few dual core models as well, like the i5 661 and the quad core models like i5 750, 760.Present Sandy Bridge i5s are quad core CPUs (I'm talking about desktops here).

When you say AMD dual core, it unclear which series you're talking about since there are a lot of dual core AMD CPUs.
 
Intel i5 is quad ( 4 ) core and like you said AMD dual (2 ) core. Quad cores are much faster and better in multitasking , CPU high demanding programs and aplications , in gaming , in the games who are optimised to use multicore ( 4 cores are better than 2 cores).
 
There are more i5 dual core than there are quad but most AMD duals are more dated than any i5 but unless you tell us which CPUs noone can tell you much more. Are we talking mobile or desktop, current or older generation CPUs AMD Athlon Phenom A series?

About the same difference as between a Ford and a Chev. An objective person would say for a given price they do about the same things in about the same way. Intel has more brand recognition and tends to cost more than AMD does but otherwise there is little difference. Unless you ask a fanboy.
