Gaming performance

Let's see how good Celeron 1000M and A6-7000 are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Celeron 1000M

0.6% faster in synthetic tests
Finer manufacturing process technology (22 vs 28 nm)
Enhanced SpeedStep (saves energy by managing CPU frequency and voltage in realtime. Supercedes SpeedStep)
Thermal Monitoring (prevents a CPU from overheating by lowering frequency upon reaching the critical temperature)
Execute Disable Bit (allows marking some memory ranges as non-executable, thus protecting software against so-called "buffer overflow" attacks)
MMX (MultiMedia Extensions - the very first (1996) SIMD instruction expansion for Intel desktop CPUs, works with 64-bit registers)
Thermal Monitoring Technologies

Advantages of AMD A6-7000

Much newer (1 June 2014 vs 21 January 2013)
Less power hungry (17 vs 35 watts)
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)
