Gaming performance

Let's see how good Core i5-7300HQ and Core i3-1005G1 are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Core i5-7300HQ

More powerful video core
Higher maximum frequency (3500 vs 3400 MHz)
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)
Virtualization (Hardware acceleration of virtual machines)
AES-NI (Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions - additional instructions for hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption)
MemoryProtectionExtensionsVersion
IdentityProtectionTechVersion

Advantages of Intel Core i3-1005G1

2.4% faster in synthetic tests
Much newer (1 August 2019 vs 3 January 2017)
Cheaper ($451.00 USD vs $888.00 USD)
Finer manufacturing process technology (10 vs 14 nm)
Less power hungry (15 vs 45 watts)
Turbo Boost 2.0 (dynamically manages an Intel CPU's voltage and core frequency, allowing them to exceed rated values for short periods of time)

So, Core i5-7300HQ or Core i3-1005G1?

Technical City couldn't decide between Intel Core i5-7300HQ and Intel Core i3-1005G1. The differences in performance seem too small.
