Gaming performance

Let's see how good A6-9220 and Core i3-3217UE are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of AMD A6-9220

Much newer (1 June 2016 vs 1 August 2012)
Less power hungry (10 vs 17 watts)
Virtualization (Hardware acceleration of virtual machines)

Advantages of Intel Core i3-3217UE

3% faster in synthetic tests
Finer manufacturing process technology (22 vs 28 nm)
MMX (MultiMedia Extensions - the very first (1996) SIMD instruction expansion for Intel desktop CPUs, works with 64-bit registers)
SSE (Streaming SIMD Instructions - a SIMD instruction extension working with 128-bit registers)
AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions - a set of SIMD instructions working with 128- and 256-bit registers)
Intel 64 (64-bit Intel CPU architecture. Almost identical to AMD64, except small and rarely used nuances)
HyperThreading (allows one physical CPU function as two logical ones. It increases performance, since while one logical CPU is waiting for data, the second may still do useful work)
