In normal use the i5 is better with higher single core but it's pretty much a draw, video encoding the 6 core is better. For games that are cpu bound like acodyssey or hzd or low spec online games such as cs go, fortnite the 6 core is better. But again normal use you will not notice the difference at all and only in specific games do you get a benefit out of the i7 but not by much since one is 10th gen and the i7 is 9th gen. If the price is the same get the 9750h, if you get at least 10% less in price get the 10300h.
