Recent Upgrade to LE 9.5 on Mac

Hi, I recently upgraded from LE 8 to LE 9.5 on Mac OS X 10.8

Can someone tell me, what are the new benefits or features I should be looking for in 9.5? I tested a few tracks, I am actually not seeing a performance improvement running same tracks on LE 9.5 vs LE 8. If anything, it seems LE 9.5 is using slightly higher CPU and memory consumption. The tracks are mostly audio tracks.

Also, one other odd thing is, when I login to my My products page on, I only see my LE 8 product. I dont see any reference to the LE 9 product I purchased? Have Steinberg separated the purchasing history of production being downloaded post-Steinberg download assistant?
