Canon Vader vs Canon Dooku

I am far more impressed with Dooku's standing relative to Yoda, than Vader's shaky, self-assessed growth over Anakin based solely on his superior 'spirit.' The Count is able to contend as a near equal to Yoda for a time whilst tired, before eventually being outclassed and forced to flee;

"Dooku was already tired from his duel with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker when Yoda arrived."

-- Fact File v3 #71

"Yoda and Dooku were almost equals, with the little Jedi Master having perhaps a slight edge over his former Padawan."

-- Fact File v3 #34

"Dooku is surprised when his old master, Yoda, arrives. After equalling each other with feats of Force power, they ignite their blades and clash in an explosive duel. Yoda's acrobatic style is matched by Dooku's finesse and the fight ends with Yoda electing to save Obi-Wan and Anakin from death rather than defeat his old Padawan."

Dooku grows even more powerful than this during the war

"Dooku's powers grew noticeably during the Clone Wars."

-- Fact File v3 #78

Up until Revenge of the Sith, where he is more powerful than ever before

"But before they can escape, they come face-to-face with a determined Count Dooku, who is more powerful than ever."

Unless I see these kinds of performances from Vader, I'm inclined to back the Count here.

I'm aware of the new 'Galaxy of Adventures' short that depicts Dooku as being half as powerful as Master Yoda, but I feel it far more 'honest' and 'correct' to refer to the highest Canon depiction of the fight; the movie, and all of the secondary sources that reference it, instead of a quick video made for kids that omits important details.
