Let's not forget "the other" competition that now exists and is whopping both Intel's and AMD's *** right now: Apple's M1 silicon.
I'm no Apple fanboi but teams blue and red have a lot of catching up to do
It's not really competition since it doesn't affect the deals they have with OEMs for servers, desktops and laptops. At most Apple could just eat a few percent in the mainstream market.

Performance-wise the M1 is amazing but it is also helped by the software it is running on. This is the result of specialised hardware and software. (akin to how consoles do it)

For people who need a nice responsive browser on a laptop, do their emails and typical office tasks, the M1 based Macs fit just the bill. And they handle video editing better too. So they are the competition in these areas.

Yes, because my cheap-***, mid-range ryzen laptop of course utterly fails when it tries to perform some menial task, just like all the other laptops I've used in the past 15 years. How we've made it so far without the M1 still boggles my mind.

"B" stands for BGA - permanently soldiered to their motherboards.

Just like Hepatitis-B, once you get it, you can never get rid of it.
