Let's see how good A9-9425 and Core M-5Y51 are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.
Advantages of AMD A9-9425
Much newer (1 June 2016 vs 1 December 2014)
Advantages of Intel Core M-5Y51
0.4% faster in synthetic tests
Finer manufacturing process technology (14 vs 28 nm)
Less power hungry (5 vs 10 watts)
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)
Intel 64 (64-bit Intel CPU architecture. Almost identical to AMD64, except small and rarely used nuances)
