Especially if you're making a large jump in operating system versions (not recommended as a standard practice), check your application compatibility here:

Do you mean it will run faster or slower and what do you base that on considering you know nothing about the system specs other than it has 16GB RAM and 2 SSDs nor the third party apps installed?

I think it will run High Sierra just fine given what we know.
