Let's see how good Core i5-2415M and Core 2 Solo SU3500 are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.
Advantages of Intel Core i5-2415M
30% faster in synthetic tests
Much newer (1 September 2011 vs 1 April 2009)
Cheaper ($225 vs $262)
Higher maximum frequency (2900 vs 1400 MHz)
Finer manufacturing process technology (32 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)
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 (Advanced Encryption Standard instructions set - hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption. Speeds up encryption software, e.g. Veracrypt)
x86-64 (a general name for 64-bit extension of x86 instruction set. There are AMD64 and Intel 64 versions that differ very little)
Advantages of Intel Core 2 Solo SU3500
Less power hungry (5 vs 35 watts)
