Gaming performance

Let's see how good Pentium 3825U and Core i3-4030Y are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Pentium 3825U

Somewhat newer (30 March 2015 vs 14 April 2014)
Cheaper ($161 vs $281)
Finer manufacturing process technology (14 vs 22 nm)
Wireless Display (allows attaching TVs and displays to a GPU through WiFi)

Advantages of Intel Core i3-4030Y

12.1% faster in synthetic tests
Less power hungry (11 vs 15 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)

So, Pentium 3825U or Core i3-4030Y?

Judging by the results of synthetic and gaming tests, Technical City recommends Intel Core i3-4030Y.
