Depends on a variety of factors, but that is why the Appliance Sizing Tool exists.  I believe this utility is only available to Check Point partners, here is a screenshot:

I provided the link in my last message, make sure you are logged into usercenter.checkpoint.com then try clicking it.  If that doesn't work, access sk97443: Support Debug Tools and click the Appliance Sizing Tool link in the "Appliances diagnostics and sizing" section of the page.

Re: fortigate 301E equivalent model

As opposed to looking for "equivalent model" it's best to understand the requirements that need to be fulfilled and choose the correct model based on that. 

Comparing datasheet numbers can only go so far as different vendors have different ways of measuring performance.

This includes both "ideal condition" and "real world" numbers.

Also, different mix of required features might not be represented on the various datasheets. 

This was the primary motivation for creating the Appliance Sizing Tool referenced earlier, to provide guidance in a variety of situations.

For fine tuning the recommendations that come from the AST, it's always best to check with your local SE.
