I'm currently running a Mac Pro with 2 X 2.66 GHZ Duel Core Intel Xeon and 6 GB of Ram.

I'm thinking about upgrading to an iMac when the new version comes up but am curious if I would see a performance boost and how much running the iMac 2.7GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 with the same amount of memory?

The processors run at about the same speed but logic tells me the quad might be twice as fast as a duel?  Is that the case?

Thanks.
