Intel Core 2 better suited for my analysis then AMD Athlon 64 X2

After getting the new quad core machine assembled, configured, and imaged I found that it can run through a single analysis about 34% faster then my current dual core machine.  Since the new machine has twice the cores its analysis throughput is about 2.7 times that of my current machine.  Sweet!

The dual core is an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual and the quad core is an Intel Core 2 Quad, but as both CPUs are running at 2.4Ghz the Intel Core 2 seems better suited to this particular analysis work then then the AMD Athlon 64 X2.
