Gaming performance

Let's see how good Ryzen 3 1200 and Core i5-4460 are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of AMD Ryzen 3 1200

0.7% faster in synthetic tests
Much newer (28 July 2017 vs 1 June 2014)
Cheaper ($110 vs $182)
Finer manufacturing process technology (14 vs 22 nm)
Less power hungry (65 vs 84 watts)
SSE 4.2
MMX (MultiMedia Extensions - the very first (1996) SIMD instruction expansion for Intel desktop CPUs, works with 64-bit registers)
3DNow! (older SIMD instructions set used by AMD CPUs. Supercedes MMX, works with 64-bit registers)
SSE (Streaming SIMD Instructions - a SIMD instruction extension working with 128-bit registers)
SSE2
SSE3
SSE4A
AMD64 (AMD CPUs 64-bit architecture. Almost identical to Intel 64, save for some little and rarely used nuances)
AMD-V (Virtualization hardware acceleration used in AMD CPUs. Speeds up work with virtual machines)

Advantages of Intel Core i5-4460

AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions - a set of SIMD instructions working with 128- and 256-bit registers)
AES-NI (Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions - additional instructions for hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption)
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)
Thermal Monitoring (prevents a CPU from overheating by lowering frequency upon reaching the critical temperature)
Identity Protection
