    I think that part of the measure of "which one is fastest" would be whether the application used is written to take advantage of multiple processors (quad processors in this case).

    For example...if you ran the benchmarking program "Cinebench":


    ...the quad 2.8ghz would definitely be faster than the core 2 duo 3.06.
