Gaming performance

Let's see how good Core i7-4750HQ and Core i7-6700HQ are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Core i7-4750HQ

More powerful video core
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)
vPro (a marketing umbrella term for several Intel technologies: AMT, TXT, EDB, VT, Anti-Theft and some others)
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 i7-6700HQ

17.4% faster in synthetic tests
Much newer (1 September 2015 vs 27 May 2013)
Cheaper ($378 vs $434)
Higher maximum frequency (3500 vs 3200 MHz)
Finer manufacturing process technology (14 vs 22 nm)
Less power hungry (45 vs 47 watts)
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)
