Hi macbethred01, Welcome to THW.

I do not have expeirence using those particular CPU's, but here is a trusted website that will give you an idea of the performance difference:

They obivously do not have every processor so I chose the one most similar to the one you are using, it is a newer CPU so the performance gap will be greater than what you see on the chart, by how much though I cannot say.

Hope that helps you out. :)
