Gaming performance

Let's see how good A9-9425 and Celeron 3965U are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of AMD A9-9425

Less power hungry (10 vs 15 watts)

Advantages of Intel Celeron 3965U

10.4% faster in synthetic tests
Somewhat newer (1 March 2017 vs 1 June 2016)
Finer manufacturing process technology (14 vs 28 nm)
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)
AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions - a set of SIMD instructions working with 128- and 256-bit registers)
AVX2 (Advanced Vector Extensions 2 - an extension to AVX, the set of SIMD instructions working with 128- and 256-bit registers)
Quick Sync (hardware acceleration of video encoding and decoding for Intel CPUs. Speeds up video encoding by times, but at the cost of somewhat lower quality)
AES-NI (Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions - additional instructions for hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption)
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)
AES (Advanced Encryption Standard instructions set - hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption. Speeds up encryption software, e.g. Veracrypt)
x86-64 (a general name for 64-bit extension of x86 instruction set. There are AMD64 and Intel 64 versions that differ very little)
vPro (a marketing umbrella term for several Intel technologies: AMT, TXT, EDB, VT, Anti-Theft and some others)
