Gaming performance

Let's see how good Core i7-7560U and Core i7-2710QE are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Core i7-7560U

0.2% faster in synthetic tests
Finer manufacturing process technology (14 vs 32 nm)
Less power hungry (15 vs 45 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)
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)
Virtualization (Hardware acceleration of virtual machines)
AES-NI (Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions - additional instructions for hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption)
MemoryProtectionExtensionsVersion

Advantages of Intel Core i7-2710QE

Cheaper ($378 vs $415)
TXT (Trusted Execution Technology - protects the system against viruses and rootkits residing in BIOS or in a boot sector)
vPro (a marketing umbrella term for several Intel technologies: AMT, TXT, EDB, VT, Anti-Theft and some others)
FMA4
