Gaming performance

Let's see how good Core i3-7100H and Ryzen 3 3200U are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Core i3-7100H

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)
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)
AES-NI (Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions - additional instructions for hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption)

Advantages of AMD Ryzen 3 3200U

17.6% faster in synthetic tests
Much newer (6 January 2018 vs 3 January 2017)
Finer manufacturing process technology (12 vs 14 nm)
Less power hungry (15 vs 35 watts)
ECCMemory

So, Core i3-7100H or Ryzen 3 3200U?

Judging by the results of synthetic and gaming tests, Technical City recommends AMD Ryzen 3 3200U.
