Apple Appleinsider is reporting that developers who have received Apple's developer-only Intel Macs are very pleased with the performance of Mac OS X on them. Some even claim that they are faster than high-end dual G5s. Developers also report that Apple's Rosetta technology, which allows Intel Macs to run PowerPC software, is fast and seamless.

When Apple spoke all these years about Apple PPC hardware being superior to x86, they were blowing smoke up people's ass?

They're stronger on different tasks, I expect benchmarks will show some things up, some down.

That said the Mac P4 will have lower memory latency, that 2MB cache will make a big difference as well.

The G5 hasn't been modified in any major way for a long time now so it'll be interesting to see how the new ones (with 1 core disabled) will go against the P4 machines.
