None are because they all surpass the Pentium 4 hands down


lets take the 

Intel® Core™2 Quad Processor Q9000 
(6M Cache, 2.00 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB)

which is one of the lowest quad and imagine 4 cores at 2.0 GHZ (4 x 2 = 8) to a single core at 3.0 GHZ and you'll see why there is no contest.


Not only is it way faster but it is also way less power hungry (quad 45 watt to a P4 who uses 89 watt) less power equals cooler CPU so there is no contest.


Also have the L2 cache difference (quad 6M P4 1M)


Even a C2D of 1.8 GHZ is better than a P4 3.0 GHZ
