Will dual core perform the same as older dual processors if speeds are the same? And will FCP Studio and AE be able to utilize dual core processors the same as dual processors?

Any applications that utilize the dual processor features should simply work the same. Apple is dealing with the differences between dualcore and dual processor in their OS code, although I don't know the specifics of how AE works.

The link above shows the dualcore 2.3 GHz performing about the same as a dual processor 2.5 GHz PowerMac. Now how much improvement you will get with 4 processors remains to be seen... you get diminishing returns for single applications.
