It's gotta be more than that, mate, or something is wrong...

If you are running one client only on the quad, that is. Should be double the dual, or thereabouts. My q6600 has been running a boatload of 2653's...about 7.30 minutes per step. They are the fastest and the best-yielding WUs by far. That's in addition to the two GPU clients in the same machine.

Try this as a test. Copy your work folder and queue.dat from the quad to the dual, and run both machines on the same WU; this way you have a direct comparison.

My comparable dual-cores all run Linux, so I can't attest to a direct comparison. They get different WUs on the a2 core.
