EDIT:  Guess I'll have to find out myself.

Same company - different skin - underlying code would be pretty much the same.

But as always, insufficient information to give a detailed answer.  Avast & AVG have multiple products and you don't say what you are comparing, apples/oranges.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 23.10.6086 (build 23.10.8563.800) UI 1.0.784/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

As DavidR mentioned...underlying code is the same, so scanning is the same.

Yepp as said, scan engine and virus signatures are identical

In short, identical,on the inside, different on the outside
