[SOLVED] Choosing the optimum configuration

The Ryzen is 35w 3.7GHz boost 4Mb cache, the Intel is 45w 4.1GHz boost 8Mb cache.

In terms of cpu performance, you'll get better possible fps from the Intel.

The gtx1050 is considerably more able than a rx560, so gpu will get better possible fps on the Intel.

The Intel will run somewhat hotter, so in intense gaming will more than likely throttle back boost to keep acceptable heat levels.

Some ppl report loosing 2Gb of usable ram on the Ryzen due to the Vega graphics, which makes no sense.

Either version, make sure to get the SDD equipped, or you'll end up with a 5400rpm HDD. Either that or purchase a seperate sata/NVMe.

Overall, the Intel has slightly higher performance, about 20fps worth. Whether that's justifiable to the heat output? Or battery life (amd wins there with lower wattage and less heat). Dunno, it's a close call. Gonna be your choice as to whether that little bit extra is worth the price difference.

Thanks a lot for your answer. So would you recommend Intel model even if it provides only 3GB of GFX? Also, how would a 8th Gen core 15 laptop fare against the ones above? Or should I not consider them at all? Like the one here https://www.amazon.in/Acer-AN515-52-15-6-inch-i5-8300H-Graphics/dp/B07W6H2YCV/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=acer+nitro+5&qid=1569844772&s=gateway&sr=8-3&th=1

It costs around 593 USD

Can't compare Gb of the graphics. AMD and nvidia are considerably different in approach and usage. Typically a 3Gb Nvidia works equitably to 4Gb amd or 6Gb vs 8Gb.

8300h is slightly slower than the 9300h, so is roughly equitable to the Ryzen 3550h.

You are looking at 3x laptops that are all about the same thing, the advantages are minor, offset by other differences. So overall there's not any glaring bonuses to any of them. What's going to be the advantage is screen types, IPS vs TN, or storage (1Gb HDD vs 500Gb) etc. And even then, that's changeable by you at any time to SSD.

I'd look at the big picture, compare all you get from one vrs other, not just concentrating on cpu/gpu.

2 identical cars. One has 8cyl other is 6cyl. 8cyl has more torque and HP, 6cyl has better gas milage. Neither has issues getting to highway speeds. 8cyl is base model, roll up windows. 6cyl has power windows. 8cyl is green, 6cyl is red. Wife: 6cyl, color don't matter, HP don't matter, power windows matters. Daughter: 8cyl, color matters, rest not.

Personal choice depending on exactly where the priority is.
