AMD Ryzen 5 4600H vs Ryzen 5 5600U
Comparing Ryzen 5 4600H and Ryzen 5 5600U processor market type (desktop or notebook), architecture, sales start time and price.
Ryzen 5 4600H and Ryzen 5 5600U basic parameters such as number of cores, number of threads, base frequency and turbo boost clock, lithography, cache size and multiplier lock state. These parameters indirectly say of CPU speed, though for more precise assessment you have to consider their test results.
Information on Ryzen 5 4600H and Ryzen 5 5600U compatibility with other computer components: motherboard (look for socket type), power supply unit (look for power consumption) etc. Useful when planning a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. Note that power consumption of some processors can well exceed their nominal TDP, even without overclocking. Some can even double their declared thermals given that the motherboard allows to tune the CPU power parameters.

Advantages of AMD Ryzen 5 4600H
0.4% better performance in benchmarks
Higher base clock speed (3000 vs 2300 MHz)
AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions - a set of SIMD instructions working with 128- and 256-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)
Virtualization (Hardware acceleration of virtual machines)
Advantages of AMD Ryzen 5 5600U
More powerful video core
Much newer (7 January 2021 vs 6 January 2020)
Higher boost clock speed (4200 vs 4000 MHz)
