Gaming performance

Let's see how good A4-6210 and Athlon X2 QL-64 are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of AMD A4-6210

Finer manufacturing process technology (28 vs 65 nm)
Less power hungry (15 vs 35 watts)
x86-64 (a general name for 64-bit extension of x86 instruction set. There are AMD64 and Intel 64 versions that differ very little)
AES (Advanced Encryption Standard instructions set - hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption. Speeds up encryption software, e.g. Veracrypt)
AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions - a set of SIMD instructions working with 128- and 256-bit registers)
AES-NI save
PowerGatingMenu
Enhanced Virus Protection (EVP)
IOMMU20Menu
Enduro (saves battery charge by automatically switching between an integrated and discrete AMD GPU depending on workload. Similar to NVIDIA Optimus)
SwitchableGraphics
UVDMenu
VCEMenu
DisplayPortMenu
HDMIMenu
Vulkan (a contemporary API for graphics acceleration, based on now-discontinued Mantle)

Advantages of AMD Athlon X2 QL-64

MMX (MultiMedia Extensions - the very first (1996) SIMD instruction expansion for Intel desktop CPUs, works with 64-bit registers)
AMD64 (AMD CPUs 64-bit architecture. Almost identical to Intel 64, save for some little and rarely used nuances)
3DNow! (older SIMD instructions set used by AMD CPUs. Supercedes MMX, works with 64-bit registers)
Virtualization (Hardware acceleration of virtual machines)
