I don't think we have solid MAME numbers for that difference, but on other benchmarks the difference at the same clock is under 5% for that switch. Things which aren't MAME (audio/video, Office, browsers, PC games, and compiling) will of course benefit a fair amount from the quad-core, but on a pure MAME basis it's not worth the upgrade.
