Gaming performance

Let's see how good Core i3-3110M and A9-9425 are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Core i3-3110M

Finer manufacturing process technology (22 vs 28 nm)
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)
Intel 64 (64-bit Intel CPU architecture. Almost identical to AMD64, except small and rarely used nuances)
Thermal Monitoring Technologies
IdentityProtectionTechVersion
QuickSyncVideo
DisplayPortMenu
HDMIMenu

Advantages of AMD A9-9425

0.6% faster in synthetic tests
Much newer (1 June 2016 vs 1 June 2012)
Higher maximum frequency (3700 vs 2400 MHz)
Less power hungry (10 vs 35 watts)
Virtualization (Hardware acceleration of virtual machines)
