Gaming performance

Let's see how good Core M-5Y10 and A6-7310 are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Core M-5Y10

0.5% faster in synthetic tests
Finer manufacturing process technology (14 vs 28 nm)
Less power hungry (5 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)
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)
Intel 64 (64-bit Intel CPU architecture. Almost identical to AMD64, except small and rarely used nuances)
Thermal Monitoring Technologies
IdentityProtectionTechVersion
QuickSyncVideo

Advantages of AMD A6-7310

Somewhat newer (7 May 2015 vs 5 September 2014)
AES (Advanced Encryption Standard instructions set - hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption. Speeds up encryption software, e.g. Veracrypt)
AMD64 (AMD CPUs 64-bit architecture. Almost identical to Intel 64, save for some little and rarely used nuances)
VT (Virtualization Technology - Intel's virtualization hardware acceleration. Speeds up work with virtual machines)
