Is Ivy Bridge, USB3 and 1600mhz RAM with a dual core i5 more powerful than a quad core i7 sandy bridge with 1333?

Trying to work out which is the faster machine!

What will you be using MBP for?
Let me answer your question with needs of mine. I will be using it for Autocad, solid and those other engineering softwares. I'm not going to be using my Mac for gaming+ I ll have an external screen at home. So is the new 13" for $1499 will be a good choise for me? What do you recommend?
