Hard to say, to be honest. With 4 cores and 4 threads, both will perform in the same ballpark.

The AMD one might have a slight edge in games, as it has a better integrated GPU, but none of them are any good for serious gaming.

Aww man. The more I thought about it last night, the more I warmed up to the idea of PC gaming. Maybe PS4 level or earlier? I heard people saying you could get an Xbox One level PC for around $500 a few years ago.

Well, I'm not going to say that whoever said that back in the day was lying, but maybe he got carried away while discussing the new machine and its specs.

Right now you could build a PC as powerful if not more than the XOne for $500, but not without some troubles because, with no intention to disrespect the machine, it's so outdated that it's hard to find components of that level outside the second hand market.

Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070
