Gaming performance

Let's see how good Core i5-8300H and Ryzen 7 PRO 3700U are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Core i5-8300H

1.9% faster in synthetic tests
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)

Advantages of AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 3700U

More powerful video core
Much newer (8 April 2019 vs 2 April 2018)
Higher maximum frequency (4000 vs 3900 MHz)
Finer manufacturing process technology (12 vs 14 nm)
Less power hungry (15 vs 45 watts)
