Damien Barrett has the first benchmark comparisons between a PowerPC running OS X and an Intel Mac (I refuse to use the word 'Mactel,' thank you very much), and it isn't pretty.

Though we must keep in mind that the PowerPC Mac has two shiny G5's whilst the Intel box has one lonely little processor, and OS X has been tweaked this way to Sunday to run on PowerPC's.

No need to weep over poor performance yet, in fact Damien is suprised at how speedy OS X was on the development box.
