Not so much the chips themselves but the motherboard chipsets. As the core and more recently core2 duo chips 
require different motherboards and support chipsets you can get into situations where stuff doesn't work unless 
you have a fairly new kernel.

I had issues with my core2duo but its fine now I am running Ubuntu feisty with kernel 2.6.20 :S
