Let's see how good Core i3-2328M and A6-9225 are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.
Advantages of Intel Core i3-2328M
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)
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)
MMX (MultiMedia Extensions - the very first (1996) SIMD instruction expansion for Intel desktop CPUs, works with 64-bit registers)
SSE (Streaming SIMD Instructions - a SIMD instruction extension working with 128-bit registers)
x86-64 (a general name for 64-bit extension of x86 instruction set. There are AMD64 and Intel 64 versions that differ very little)
Thermal Monitoring Technologies
Advantages of AMD A6-9225
3.7% faster in synthetic tests
Much newer (1 June 2018 vs 2 October 2012)
Finer manufacturing process technology (28 vs 32 nm)
Less power hungry (10 vs 35 watts)
So, Core i3-2328M or A6-9225?
