Gaming performance

Let's see how good Core i7-4710HQ and Ryzen 7 2700U are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Core i7-4710HQ

4.4% faster in synthetic tests
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)
Intel 64 (64-bit Intel CPU architecture. Almost identical to AMD64, except small and rarely used nuances)
Hyper-Threading (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)
TXT (Trusted Execution Technology - protects the system against viruses and rootkits residing in BIOS or in a boot sector)
Thermal Monitoring (prevents a CPU from overheating by lowering frequency upon reaching the critical temperature)
Identity Protection
DisplayPort
HDMI

Advantages of AMD Ryzen 7 2700U

Much newer (10 January 2018 vs 14 April 2014)
Finer manufacturing process technology (14 vs 22 nm)
Less power hungry (15 vs 47 watts)
SSE 4.2
SSE4A
SSE4.1
AES (Advanced Encryption Standard instructions set - hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption. Speeds up encryption software, e.g. Veracrypt)
AMD64 (AMD CPUs 64-bit architecture. Almost identical to Intel 64, save for some little and rarely used nuances)
AMD-V (Virtualization hardware acceleration used in AMD CPUs. Speeds up work with virtual machines)
