The 7 nm AMD Renoir series has been nothing short of impressive on laptops to the point where even a $1200 Ryzen 7 4800H laptop could outperform a $2000 Core i9-10980HK alternative. Performance isn't the problem, but availability remains a huge issue.
Currently, the product pages for the 6-core Ryzen 5 4600H and 8-core Ryzen 7 4800H highlight the specifications of each processor and a selection of laptops shipping with them. As of this writing, however, the only laptop on both of these pages is the Dell G5 15 SE. This leaves a bad impression and realization to potential buyers that there just aren't many Ryzen-powered gaming laptops to choose from especially when compared to Intel.
This isn't to say there are no other gaming laptops out there with Zen 2 processors. MSI, Asus, Lenovo, and HP already have or are planning to launch more AMD options alongside their usual Intel Core models. It will likely take a couple more years before consumers will see more equal SKU options between AMD and Intel again.
