Let's see how good Ryzen 7 2700U and Core i5-8265U are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.
Advantages of AMD Ryzen 7 2700U
Less power hungry (15 vs 28 watts)
Advantages of Intel Core i5-8265U
Somewhat newer (1 October 2018 vs 26 October 2017)
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)
