I'm sorry, I don't have the numbers on me, as my fleet mate was the one parsing the damage for me.

What we tested:
Cutting Beam and Turret Mk XII (purple) [ctd]x3 firing at the same time with my weapon power above 135.

My fleet mate took his shields off and we tested the Turret + CRF3 and the Cutting Beam at the same time, end result was the Cutting Beam did about twice as much DPS as the Turret.

When he put his shields on, the DPS on the Cutting Beam was a little less than the Turret.

So, against shields, it's about the same as a turret. Against hull, it's about the same as having two turrets.
