Gaming performance

Let's see how good Core i3-2105 and Core i3-3220T are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Core i3-2105

3.9% faster in synthetic tests
More powerful video core
Cheaper ($145 vs $201)

Advantages of Intel Core i3-3220T

Much newer (3 September 2012 vs 22 May 2011)
Finer manufacturing process technology (22 vs 32 nm)
Less power hungry (35 vs 65 watts)
AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions - a set of SIMD instructions working with 128- and 256-bit registers)
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)

So, Core i3-2105 or Core i3-3220T?

Technical City couldn't decide between Intel Core i3-2105 and Intel Core i3-3220T. The differences in performance seem too small.
