What is the fastest factory installed W530 CPU?

Yes, same question but for W530. On the fence of whether to go with W530 or W520.

What is the fastest factory installed W530 CPU?

Data out there is inconsistent, I assume this is because Lenovo made multiple upgrades during the lineup's lifespan.

I also know that people have successfully installed faster CPUs not originally offered by Lenovo. What would be the fastest that is fully compatible?
