Gaming performance

Let's see how good Core i5-3320M and Core i3-7020U are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Core i5-3320M

0.9% faster in synthetic tests
Cheaper ($225 vs $281)
Intel 64 (64-bit Intel CPU architecture. Almost identical to AMD64, except small and rarely used nuances)
TXT (Trusted Execution Technology - protects the system against viruses and rootkits residing in BIOS or in a boot sector)

Advantages of Intel Core i3-7020U

Much newer (30 August 2016 vs 1 June 2012)
Finer manufacturing process technology (14 vs 22 nm)
Less power hungry (15 vs 35 watts)
AVX2 (Advanced Vector Extensions 2 - an extension to AVX, the set of SIMD instructions working with 128- and 256-bit registers)
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)
