Let's see how good Atom x7-E3950 and Core m3-6Y30 are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.
Advantages of Intel Atom x7-E3950
3.6% faster in synthetic tests
Much newer (10 October 2016 vs 1 September 2015)
Cheaper ($57 vs $281)
Advantages of Intel Core m3-6Y30
Less power hungry (4 vs 12 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)
Virtualization (Hardware acceleration of virtual machines)
AES-NI (Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions - additional instructions for hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption)
x86-64 (a general name for 64-bit extension of x86 instruction set. There are AMD64 and Intel 64 versions that differ very little)
