Legion 5 or 5i - any big difference for gaming?

I’m thinking about replacing my aging desktop with a Legion 5 laptop, but I’m wondering about going with an AMD CPU (Legion 5) or (Legion 5i). I’m not too interested in productivity performance, as other than gaming I don’t do anything that’s too CPU demanding. I’ve seen reviews on Jarrod’s Tech that show game performance and battery are both good on the AMD CPUs, and laptops with AMD are usually a few hundred dollars cheaper. But is there anything I’m not aware of that I should know before going Team Red? Anyone had any problems with AMD chips that I wouldn’t have to deal with on an Intel system. Thanks for the advice!
