Let's see how good Core i5-10300H and Ryzen 5 4600H are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.
Advantages of Intel Core i5-10300H
Somewhat newer (17 September 2020 vs 6 January 2020)
Higher maximum frequency (4500 vs 4000 MHz)
Less power hungry (45 vs 54 watts)
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)
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)
AES-NI (Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions - additional instructions for hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption)
Intel 64 (64-bit Intel CPU architecture. Almost identical to AMD64, except small and rarely used nuances)
TXT (Trusted Execution Technology - protects the system against viruses and rootkits residing in BIOS or in a boot sector)
Thermal Monitoring Technologies
Advantages of AMD Ryzen 5 4600H
68.4% faster (about 1.5 times) in synthetic tests
More powerful video core
Cheaper ($909.00 USD vs $1275.00 USD)
Higher base frequency (3000 vs 2500 MHz)
Finer manufacturing process technology (7 vs 14 nm)
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)
So, Core i5-10300H or Ryzen 5 4600H?
Judging by the results of synthetic and gaming tests, Technical City recommends AMD Ryzen 5 4600H.
