It depends! It depends on your hardware configuration, and software. In your case, where DB server and app server are identical, I'd suggest that the DB is the place to do the operation. But I think this is a case of try it, and see which is faster.
Have you considered using parallel processing to get the information from the database? If it is a multiple processor, with mirroring or RAID, then this could boost performance considerably.
