Gaming performance

Let's see how good Celeron 3755U and Core i3-3229Y are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Celeron 3755U

Much newer (5 January 2015 vs 1 January 2013)
Cheaper ($107 vs $250)
Finer manufacturing process technology (14 vs 22 nm)
AES-NI (Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions - additional instructions for hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption)
Virtualization (Hardware acceleration of virtual machines)
Wireless Display (allows attaching TVs and displays to a GPU through WiFi)
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)

Advantages of Intel Core i3-3229Y

Less power hungry (13 vs 15 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)
Intel 64 (64-bit Intel CPU architecture. Almost identical to AMD64, except small and rarely used nuances)
Anti-Theft (Anti-Theft enabled laptop, if equipped with a 3G module, can be blocked remotely by an SMS message when stolen)
My WiFi (allows an Intel CPU based laptop function as a WiFi router)
Idle States (a set of CPU idle states of varied depth, used for energy saving purposes)
Enhanced SpeedStep (saves energy by managing CPU frequency and voltage in realtime. Supercedes SpeedStep)
Thermal Monitorin (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)

So, Celeron 3755U or Core i3-3229Y?

Technical City couldn't decide between Intel Celeron 3755U and Intel Core i3-3229Y. The differences in performance seem too small.
