Gaming performance

Let's see how good Core i5-4340M and A6-5350M are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Core i5-4340M

0.2% faster in synthetic tests
More powerful video core
Somewhat newer (19 January 2014 vs 1 June 2013)
Higher maximum frequency (3600 vs 3500 MHz)
Finer manufacturing process technology (22 vs 32 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)
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)
vPro (a marketing umbrella term for several Intel technologies: AMT, TXT, EDB, VT, Anti-Theft and some others)
AES-NI (Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions - additional instructions for hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption)
Thermal Monitoring Technologies
IdentityProtectionTechVersion
QuickSyncVideo

Advantages of AMD A6-5350M

Less power hungry (35 vs 37 watts)
x86-64 (a general name for 64-bit extension of x86 instruction set. There are AMD64 and Intel 64 versions that differ very little)
AES (Advanced Encryption Standard instructions set - hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption. Speeds up encryption software, e.g. Veracrypt)
FMA4
3DNow! (older SIMD instructions set used by AMD CPUs. Supercedes MMX, works with 64-bit registers)
AMD64 (AMD CPUs 64-bit architecture. Almost identical to Intel 64, save for some little and rarely used nuances)
Enduro (saves battery charge by automatically switching between an integrated and discrete AMD GPU depending on workload. Similar to NVIDIA Optimus)
