Gaming performance

Let's see how good Core i7-4800MQ and Ryzen 5 3550H are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Core i7-4800MQ

Higher base frequency (2700 vs 2100 MHz)
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)
vPro (a marketing umbrella term for several Intel technologies: AMT, TXT, EDB, VT, Anti-Theft and some others)
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)

Advantages of AMD Ryzen 5 3550H

35.7% faster in synthetic tests
More powerful video core
Much newer (6 January 2019 vs 29 April 2013)
Finer manufacturing process technology (12 vs 22 nm)
Less power hungry (35 vs 47 watts)
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)
ECCMemory

So, Core i7-4800MQ or Ryzen 5 3550H?

Judging by the results of synthetic and gaming tests, Technical City recommends AMD Ryzen 5 3550H.
