Gaming performance

Let's see how good Core i7-7600U and A10 Pro-7350B are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Core i7-7600U

Much newer (3 January 2017 vs 4 June 2014)
Finer manufacturing process technology (14 vs 28 nm)
Less power hungry (15 vs 19 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)
MMX (MultiMedia Extensions - the very first (1996) SIMD instruction expansion for Intel desktop CPUs, works with 64-bit registers)
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)
