    CPU upgrade expectations




      I am about to upgrade a CPU on my 2008 Lenovo X301, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD. Wondering, what actual performance increase I can expect replacing SU9400 Core 2 Duo 1.4 GHz, 3MB L2 cache, 800MHz FSB with SP9600 Core 2 Duo 2.53 GHz, 6MB L2 cache, 1066MHz FSB? I've been looking into some benchmark websites and replacement CPU gets double the ratings, but that is not an accurate representation of performance difference. Is there a practical way to calculate this % wise?
