Gaming performance

Let's see how good Pentium Gold 4417U 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 4417U

1.1% faster in synthetic tests
More powerful video core
Cheaper ($423.00 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)

Advantages of AMD Athlon Silver 3050U

Somewhat newer (7 January 2020 vs 15 February 2019)
Higher maximum frequency (3200 vs 2300 MHz)
AVX2 (Advanced Vector Extensions 2 - an extension to AVX, the set of SIMD instructions working with 128- and 256-bit registers)
AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions - a set of SIMD instructions working with 128- and 256-bit registers)
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)
