They would be the same and there would be no discernable difference in "speed".
The only difference would be that the G4 has the Altivec Processor.

a g4 mmd dual would be a lot faster than a g3 or single cpu g4

the g3 uses sdram pc100,,and the g4 uses pc 133,, a tad faster. i had a g3 450mhz ,and then bought a 2002 quicksilver 800mhz...noticeably faster. now my mdd dual 867 is quite a bit faster than the other two.
