Gaming performance

Let's see how good Core i5-9300H and Ryzen 5 4600U are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Core i5-9300H

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)
x86-64 (a general name for 64-bit extension of x86 instruction set. There are AMD64 and Intel 64 versions that differ very little)

Advantages of AMD Ryzen 5 4600U

1.2% faster in synthetic tests
Somewhat newer (6 January 2020 vs 30 April 2019)
Finer manufacturing process technology (7 vs 14 nm)
Less power hungry (25 vs 45 watts)
AMD64 (AMD CPUs 64-bit architecture. Almost identical to Intel 64, save for some little and rarely used nuances)

So, Core i5-9300H or Ryzen 5 4600U?

Technical City couldn't decide between Intel Core i5-9300H and AMD Ryzen 5 4600U. The differences in performance seem too small.
