    If you are primarily concerned with client performance, you can find some options under System Administration, Setup, System, Client performance options.

    In particular, enabling Fact Boxes can be a significant performance impact at the client.

    Also since most of AX is still compile on demand into P-code, anything you can do that improves compile performance will have an impact on the client experience.  There are significant improvements to compile performance in CU6 for 2012 R2.  Much discussion on these can be found on these forums.

    Good luck!
