Gaming performance

Let's see how good Core i3-4020Y and Core 2 Duo SU7300 are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Core i3-4020Y

Much newer (1 September 2013 vs 1 September 2009)
Finer manufacturing process technology (22 vs 45 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)
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)

Advantages of Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300

36.8% faster in synthetic tests
Less power hungry (10 vs 11 watts)
Enhanced SpeedStep (saves energy by managing CPU frequency and voltage in realtime. Supercedes SpeedStep)
TXT (Trusted Execution Technology - protects the system against viruses and rootkits residing in BIOS or in a boot sector)

So, Core i3-4020Y or Core 2 Duo SU7300?

Judging by the results of synthetic and gaming tests, Technical City recommends Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300.
