Yeah. My suspicion all along has been that the clock difference is intended to ensure that there isn't a large performance difference between the two models. For that reason I'm actually more curious about the dual-quad's battery performance (and how well the scheduling, swapping core-sets, works out for the user in a range of circumstances, as that's an amusing little problem to optimise).

But it looks like in the immediate future this question is academic for me (though as I am an academic I shouldn't use that word like that ).
