New Laptop - Intel vs. AMD for editing

I'd like to upgrade my 6 year old Asus Vivobook for photo and video editing. The biggest bottlenecks I've been fighting the past years are panorama stitching in Adobe Photoshop (system slows down immensely as soon as more than 5 FF images are involved) and anything regarding video rendering - so primarily, the new device is supposed to solve these issues.

Actually I have already decided for a product but am reaching out to the community for help regarding the model configuration. The new Asus ProArt StudioBook (Pro) 16'' OLED comes in different configurations (details see following link) and I do not know which one would be the best pick for my usage scenario:

It seems to all come down to Intel vs. AMD. I am quite convinced that I do not need an Intel Xeon as I do not want a workstation (and also dread the noise level), which leaves the choice to:

1) AMD Ryzen™ 9 5900HX Processor 3.3GHz + AMD Radeon™ Vega 7 Graphics, NVIDIA® RTX™ A2000

2) AMD Ryzen™ 9 5900HX Processor 3.3GHz + AMD Radeon™ Vega 7 Graphics, NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX™ 3060 (apparently specs are incomplete and it can also be ordered with RTX3070)

3) Intel® Core™ i7-11800H Processor 2.4 GHz + Intel® UHD Graphics, NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX™ 3060

I am favoring 1), but have no previous AMD experience. Are these comparable in performance for Photoshop/Video processing? Apparently AMD has compatibility issues with some platforms but I wonder if these are just corner cases/very special applications? Also, how does the RTX A2000 fare against the RTX3070?
