Feeling generous today.

If Intel marketing dept intended to make their CPU naming convention extremely cryptic, to confuse possible extraterrestrials who may attack us in near future...... mission accomplished. No chance they will be using Intel technology against us.

Honestly there's not much difference between "Ryzen 5 5600H" and "Core i7-11370H". Also AMD copied the 3,5,7 numbering from Intel :/

(which is good because these numbers have been around forever and it helps consumers to make easy comparisons)

I think when we see the next gen Raphael APUs with Zen4 CPU and RDNA GPU they will put this gen to shame, even as good as it is. By 2025 we are looking at over 70% IPC uplift alone from both AMD and Intel. Zen 4 is reportedly going to offer over 20% IPC uplift, possibly 30%. I'm putting off updating my 2016 XPS 15 until 2023 and we'll see how Raphael compares to Meteor Lake P.

There is a difference. There is no such thing as R5 5630H. Why is it 11370H? Is its performance below 11400H but just above 11350H? Will there be 11380H? And what about i7-1185G7? This looks more like a serial number than a processor name.

-B560 vs B550
-3000 series desktop and 4000 series laptops with Zen 2
-5000 series using Zen 2 and 3
-Launching products you can't even buy (1600AF, 3300X, APU's, 4000 and 5000 series mobile)
-Socket compatibility (Zen 3 on 400 series)
-etc etc etc...

AMD has far more problems confusing customers. Not very smart when you're trying to claw back market share. Are Intel's names confusing and vast? Yes. Doesn't mean it's ok for AMD to soil the bed out of pity.

5600H loses in almost all game benchmarks so the title is misleading.
10600K is a much better performer for Laptop gaming

???

The 10600K is a DESKTOP chip.
The 5600H is a LAPTOP chip.

You're not comparing the same class of device. 150W desktop CPUs almost always smoke 45W laptop CPUs. Note the difference in power consumption needed to do that.

Conveniently tested on the eve of the 10nm 8 core tiger lake parts release. I mean the AMD parts are likely to be faster anyway but it would be closer and more relevant to the choices laptop buyers will have going forward.

The real standout here is the 4800h...I would love a 3060 + 4800h laptop.
Sure, 5600h is nice, but it has only 6 cores and amd is starting to get up in prices on this gen. 1550$ for a laptop with these spec is similar to intel asks for a similar laptop. and the 11400h which is also a 6 core, will be similar in perf.
As always, techspot and implicitly, hardware unboxed likes to bash intel and kiss amd's....bum.
Yeah, 5600h is faster than i9, but that i9 is now over an year old, so it is last gen.
