Well not really, but Anandtech have some benches of Intel's new Yonah dual-core cpu (the one Apple will be using in it's PowerBooks).

The numbers look pretty good, especially when you consider the version of Yonah they benched there is not quite as fast as the one we will see in production laptops (the one they benched has a slower FSB for starters).

Considering that the Intel PowerBooks will have 2 cores vs 1 G4 core in the current PowerBooks. I am hoping apps like FCP won't run noticibly slower on the Intel PowerBooks under Rosetta.

That looks pretty darn good to me. And like you said, the extra speed will be a godsend for those needing to make use of Rosetta.
