Gaming performance

Let's see how good A6-5200 and Turion 64 X2 TL-62 are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of AMD A6-5200

Much newer (23 May 2013 vs 13 April 2007)
Finer manufacturing process technology (28 vs 65 nm)
Less power hungry (25 vs 35 watts)
SSE (Streaming SIMD Instructions - a SIMD instruction extension working with 128-bit registers)
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)
MMX (MultiMedia Extensions - the very first (1996) SIMD instruction expansion for Intel desktop CPUs, works with 64-bit registers)
3DNow! (older SIMD instructions set used by AMD CPUs. Supercedes MMX, works with 64-bit registers)
AMD64 (AMD CPUs 64-bit architecture. Almost identical to Intel 64, save for some little and rarely used nuances)
Virtualization (Hardware acceleration of virtual machines)
AES-NI save
