The specs of the two laptops are the same (8GB RAM, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650, 144Hz Display, 512 SSD) and the only difference between the two is these two processors. If I play high-end games and AAA titles then I should go with which processor? { HP Pavilion has Ryzen 5600H and Asus TUF has i5 10300H }

MR Jack CK, And what about the battery backup? The new Asus TUF A15 (not F15) with Ryzen 4600H and all the other specs are the same, has a 90Watt battery which is way more than HP Pavillion's 52.5 Watt battery. Also, I have heard that there's a performance mode in TUF that when enabled, gives some fan noise but controls the thermals efficiently. Also Idk why but to me TUF looks so much better than Pavillion in its looks. It's just stunning. So should I go with this new model of TUF?

Ryzen 5 5600h performs significantly better than the i5 10300h. It has 4 more threads and 2 more cores than the I5 which will help a lot with performance. Ryzen is much better for everything including gaming. It has much better integrated graphics too. You should definitely go for the ryzen 5 5600h.
