Gaming performance

Let's see how good Ryzen 5 3550H and Core i5-9300H are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of AMD Ryzen 5 3550H

Finer manufacturing process technology (12 vs 14 nm)
Less power hungry (35 vs 45 watts)
ECCMemory

Advantages of Intel Core i5-9300H

15.4% faster in synthetic tests
Somewhat newer (30 April 2019 vs 6 January 2019)
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)
