Ryzen 5600H is the very capable processor. It starts from ₹56000 range and in this intel can't even enter the competition. There is rarely a difference between the two.

If you use your laptop for MATLAB or any intensive data science application which requires AVX and Intel Math Kernel Libraries. Go Intel to avoid throttling.

These processors do not come with a very high-performance video card. AMD's solution in Lenovo Legion 5 is completely right for me.

For gaming, i5-11400H igpu is going to hugely bottleneck the dgpu in the laptop without a mux switch.

Yeah, I just found out my version of Acer Nitro 5 lacks a MUX switch and I hate myself for not buying Legion 5 with it instead.

You can get ryzen 5 5600h even cheaper than i5 11300h, the gaming performance in some games is worse, but doing multi-cores tasks is better for ryzen, AAA games are heavily affected by weak intel igpu of your laptop doesn't have mux.
