There seems to be no comparison between the signal or noise values between different types of card, the only commonality being that "better" is nearer +infinity. E.g. for one probing client I typically get:

Intel:
Power: -44 Best: -34
Noise: 0 Best: 0

Madwifi:
Power: 60 Best: 63
Noise: -95 Best: -86
