I don't need an article to tell me what I see daily, experience trump's theory anyday, and why yes you can get the cores from Intel it costs significantly more that's the point your missing. At the end of the day 50-100 dollars matters per system when your buying 100 at a time.
Yea, no. Give me a credible source link to back up your claims.

Sure go get a job working in corporate America, otherwise your viewpoint on this is irrelevant. Ask anyone supporting corporations what the real world experience is, it's vastly different than your opinion

Point is the reusable mobo thing is just AMD being lazy, because newer chipsets dont offer much. Zen's success won't last as long as Intel is strong. You can preach the save the market thing all you want. Reality is, AMD didn't do enough in the three years its had to make everyone look up. All three launches were plagued with memory compatibility issues, BIOS updates, and chips not hitting boost. It also didn't do the basics better than Intel, which is single threaded performance. AMD can add all the cores they want (beacuse they sucked at raising IPC and clocks simultaneously), but without the software, they are limited to few and expensive products. An Intel/NVIDIA combo will almost always be enough or better than an AMD platform, because of software optimizations and technologies like Quicksync and CUDA.

The hurdles are there if you open your eyes. AMD is good, but far from great.

Intel didn't pull in $19.2B in the same quarter Ryzen 2 was strong because AMD is killing them...
Your statement is so vague, using the strong profits of a company to prove your point is lazy journalism. AMD sells mostly CPUs and GPUs, Intel portfolio is much bigger.

I think this pretty much explains why AMD's profits tanked for going on 14 years:
