Dual-core processors didn't always fare well. To be fair, these tests tend to focus on single applications running at a time (even though some are multi-threaded). We're not attempting to measure perceived responsiveness, and that may be the dual-core processor's real strength. Of course, part of the reason is that the dual-core CPUs tend to be priced higher than their single-core clock-rate equivalents.
