Yes! You can upgrade the logic board to the better CPU.

Here’s the IFIXIT guide you’ll need to follow MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Mid 2012 Logic Board Replacement. And here’s the part number info on the different boards:

  • 661-6491 - 2.3 GHz Logic Board
  • 661-6492 - 2.6 GHz Logic Board
  • 661-6493 - 2.7 GHz Logic Board

Presently IFIXIT is out of stock as these are highly sought after. You’ll need to do a Google search: Apple [P/N] to see who has one for sale.
