Let's see how good Core i5-430UM and Celeron P4600 are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.
Advantages of Intel Core i5-430UM
1.1% faster in synthetic tests
Somewhat newer (24 May 2010 vs 28 March 2010)
Less power hungry (18 vs 35 watts)
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)
Intel 64 (64-bit Intel CPU architecture. Almost identical to AMD64, except small and rarely used nuances)
Idle States (a set of CPU idle states of varied depth, used for energy saving purposes)
Enhanced SpeedStep (saves energy by managing CPU frequency and voltage in realtime. Supercedes SpeedStep)
Thermal Monitoring (prevents a CPU from overheating by lowering frequency upon reaching the critical temperature)
Execute Disable Bit (allows marking some memory ranges as non-executable, thus protecting software against so-called "buffer overflow" attacks)
Advantages of Intel Celeron P4600
We are unaware of any advantages of Intel Celeron P4600 over Intel Core i5-430UM.
So, Core i5-430UM or Celeron P4600?
