Given say a dual 3.0GHz and quad 2.5GHz, then a specific task that's CPU-bound but cannot spread over multiple cores may run a little faster on the 3.0GHz machine, which happens to be dual.

But in the real world, many things do use multiple cores. A blanket statement of "dual is faster than quad" is b0ll0x.
