Let's see how good Core i7-4722HQ and Ryzen 7 2700U are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.
Advantages of Intel Core i7-4722HQ
9.4% 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)
Thermal Monitoring Technologies
Advantages of AMD Ryzen 7 2700U
Much newer (10 January 2018 vs 1 January 2015)
Finer manufacturing process technology (14 vs 22 nm)
Less power hungry (15 vs 37 watts)
SSE (Streaming SIMD Instructions - a SIMD instruction extension working with 128-bit registers)
MMX (MultiMedia Extensions - the very first (1996) SIMD instruction expansion for Intel desktop CPUs, works with 64-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)
