All things being equal
- HD, RAM, video card, etc.
The G4 would do more work "per cycle" and this would show up in software like Photoshop, especially CPU hungry.

Not only that, but the G4 also supports Altivec instructions. These instructions can significantly improve the performance of certain applications if the applications support these instructions. Mac OS X (specifically Quartz) and Photoshop support these instructions, and so run faster on a G4 than a G3.
