Gaming performance

Let's see how good Xeon D-1559 and Xeon E5-2630L are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Xeon D-1559

0.2% faster in synthetic tests
Finer manufacturing process technology (14 vs 32 nm)
Less power hungry (45 vs 60 watts)
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)
TransactionalSynchronizationExtensionVersion

Advantages of Intel Xeon E5-2630L

Intel 64 (64-bit Intel CPU architecture. Almost identical to AMD64, except small and rarely used nuances)
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)
AES-NI (Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions - additional instructions for hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption)

So, Xeon D-1559 or E5-2630L?
