Check out anandtech's BENCH page. Here's a link to a comparison between the Q6600 and an I7-2600K (both stock).

It looks like the 2600K is significantly faster - like 70-150% faster, depending on the test used.

That being said - here's a couple things you can do to speed it up now:

1) limit your undos. Every time you load an image and apply the current settings, the undo history has to load from the db as well.

2) have multiple databases in order to limit database size. The bigger the database, the longer it takes to sort through the data to get to the preview and apply all the edits.
