Yes a brute force key-guessing attack would be faster, but: It would be ridiculously slow for either. E.g. see this for 256-bit keys. There are faster attacks on both and those attacks break larger RSA sizes than ECC sizes. Related: Why can ECC key sizes be smaller than RSA keys for similar security?
