Let's see how good GeForce 930MX and Radeon 530 are for gaming. Particular gaming benchmark results are measured in FPS.
Advantages of NVIDIA GeForce 930MX
Less power hungry (17 vs 50 watts)
Optimus (lowers energy usage by automatically switching between integrated and discrete NVIDIA GPU. Similar to AMD Enduro)
CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture - an API for video card computing power usage in tasks different from 3D graphics processing. Can be used for physics simulation for instance)
Advantages of AMD Radeon 530
Much newer (18 April 2017 vs 1 March 2016)
Higher memory bandwidth (28.8 vs 14.4 GB/s)
Mantle (an API developed by AMD for 3D graphics acceleration. Discontinued and later superceded by Vulkan)
OpenCL 1.2 (Open Computing Language - an API for GPU usage in arbitrary calculations, e.g. for physics simulation)
Vulkan (a contemporary API for graphics acceleration, based on now-discontinued Mantle)
