In addition, given those parts above (i7-4790k RX 580...my current main system), what "bottleneck number" might you think is correct?
18%, 1.87%, 3.42% ?

They're all correct.
Or all incorrect.

Same system and parts, over time:
haha thats funny,this is why i dont use this,this is why i ask you will it bottleneck or now if it is good pair or not

i asking this becouse i need machine for gaming i mean (laptop)...
most of the time will be gaming i mean ofc browsing and myb few movies a week,no editing,no photoshop,etc...

gaming,movies,browsing...

this is my list of links that i can spend money on it... (one with lenovo idepad gaming 3 is no longer availabe myb if i call it i can get it)

i found laptop with 8gb ram( i can order 8gb + from the site when i order laptop)cpu is i7 10750h but only with 1650nonti in that price... so i dont know now if the nonti is worth it...

for me is weird why the intel is so much expesive over amd...

one of this 3

( i can go lower like i7,8gb ram + buy 8gb more and nonti 1650)

or if i goo much price up then i will buy one with i7 1660ti or rtx 2060... but this is very unlikly... so pls tell me one of this 3 which one mostly for GAMING...FPS...COOLING...

Ofcorse,gaming?cooling?specs in general?etc? (Of this 3)
I dont know if this 2 i like first have higher HZ. Thanks
 
If you care at all about Ray Tracing, get the RTX 2060. If not, go with the 1660ti. The difference between the two is tiny, for traditional gaming.
I'd add that if it's a Max Q variant of the RTX2060, the 1660ti mobile is actually a little faster. Ranges between 5-15% in most games. Obviously as you pointed out, no raytracing the GTX though. Had the same choice for my laptop GPU. Went with the 1660ti mobile, and I love it.

hey, i cant decide now betwen this two laptops...

i know i mean i read old acer nitro 5 2018/2019 have a little bad cooling but new 2020/2021 solved this with cooling problem but i dont know about legion 5

Lenovo legion 5 82B1003XSC OR
Acer nitro 5 2020 NH.Q7QEX.006

(both 144hz display,ram the same,disk the same,but different cpu and gpu...)

links:
Acer: https://www.links.hr/hr/prijenosno-racunalo-acer-nitro-5-nh-q7qex-006-core-i7-10750h-16gb-512gb-ssd-geforce-rtx-2060-6gb-15-6-ips-fhd-freedos-crno-015000527

Lenovo: https://www.links.hr/hr/prijenosno-racunalo-lenovo-legion-5-82b1003xsc-ryzen-5-4600h-16gb-512gb-ssd-geforce-gtx-1660ti-6gb-15-6-fhd-144hz-freedos-crno-015000523

with laptop i gonna buy this or if i found better coling pad

link: https://www.links.hr/hr/hladenje-za-notebook-ewent-ew1259-do-17-5-crno-016004091

Gaming?performance?cooling system?temp in general?games temp?

i will buy laptop in a week and here in my country this i a hell of a lot money...
 
The link for the first one (Acer Nitro) doesn't show anything. Page not found.

I did look at other Acer's, and the one you have highlighted, I'm pretty sure comes with the 80W mobile variant of the 2060 and not the Max Q. So it will push more FPS. The Intel is a nudge faster than the Ryzen 4600h in games (really not much) along with the RTX2060 mobile version, I'd go with the lenovo for more performance. The Ryzen may get better results with multi-core work, but for gaming the Lenovo will push more FPS. The Ryzen also runs cooler that the I7.

you say this but then you say

I'd go with the lenovo for more performance. The Ryzen may get better results with multi-core work, but for gaming the Lenovo will push more FPS. The Ryzen also runs cooler that the I7.

But intel and rtx have acer not lenovo...in firstly you say intel snd rtx is better gaming/fpa (acer) but then you say lenovo i dont understand Sry...

2060 maxQ are slower, due to lower power draw. They turn the voltage down, to save on power, and heat.

Hmmm now i have two laptops left to buy

what laptops i kick out (idepad gaming,asus rog,asus tuf a15)

Two that left to choise.

lenovo legion 5 (ryzen 5 4600h,1660ti,16gb ram,512Gb ssd,144hz 15.6”)

acer nitro 5 2020 an515-55 (i7-10750h,rtx 2060,16gb ram,512gb ssd,144hz 15.6”)

price lenovo is about 70-100€ more expensive here in my country.

Performance gaming?cooling?thermals? Futureproof? Thanks

You have been given performance comparisons. Gaming, GPU matters most, period. Either CPU will perform similarly, even if they both had a 2060. There is no such thing as futureproof, especially in laptops, that you cannot really upgrade much, beyond ram, and storage. Both are 6c/12t chips, so even future multicore capability is the same. Thermals, all you can do is look for reviews of those exact models.
