Below is a brief blurb from thinksecret.com regarding the two processors. I'm not sure how to decipher the numbers, but perhaps one could conclude that the dual 2.0 G5 is at least twice as capable as a single 1.0 G4. That's an overly simple thought for sure, since optimized software will probably push the G5 even farther ahead.
No mention of where on the Skidmark scale a dual G4 sits though.
"Another screenshot shows results from Skidmarks GT, a benchmarking utility that's part of Apple's CHUD performance tools. Based on the test we ran, this provides a rough comparison of G5 and G4 performance. The Skidmarks scale has "100" equal a Power Mac G4 at 1GHz. The Dual 2GHz received scores of 172 for integer performance, 270 for floating point performance, and 208 for vector performance."
