Gaming performance

Let's see how good Pentium Gold 4415U and Athlon Silver 3050U are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Pentium Gold 4415U

0.8% faster in synthetic tests
More powerful video core
Cheaper ($402.00 USD vs $471.00 USD)
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)
AES-NI (Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions - additional instructions for hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption)

Advantages of AMD Athlon Silver 3050U

Much newer (7 January 2020 vs 1 March 2017)
Higher maximum frequency (3200 vs 2300 MHz)
FMA4
ECCMemory
