Gaming performance

Let's see how good Phenom II X4 P960 and Core i3-1005G1 are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of AMD Phenom II X4 P960

AMD64 (AMD CPUs 64-bit architecture. Almost identical to Intel 64, save for some little and rarely used nuances)
Virtualization (Hardware acceleration of virtual machines)
Enhanced Virus Protection (EVP)

Advantages of Intel Core i3-1005G1

Much newer (1 August 2019 vs 19 October 2010)
Higher maximum frequency (3400 vs 1800 MHz)
Finer manufacturing process technology (10 vs 45 nm)
Less power hungry (15 vs 25 watts)
Turbo Boost 2.0 (dynamically manages an Intel CPU's voltage and core frequency, allowing them to exceed rated values for short periods of time)
AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions - a set of SIMD instructions working with 128- and 256-bit registers)
AVX2 (Advanced Vector Extensions 2 - an extension to AVX, the 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)
