Also for the pool of AM4 customers this is a great cpu as a last hurra for the chipset. While the i72070kf might be a cheaper cpu and performance to match I believe the 5800x3d is a better bargain for minimum at of pocket cost for those who already own compatible am4 motherboard. As some stated here you have to get better ram for the intel cpu to get better performance ( ram that is also coming at a very high premium currently ).The 5800x3d is a really interesting part, honestly I think its lead will continue to grow as the years drag on.
Lastly the customer on the am4 platform can sell their current cpu and upgrade at even lower at of pocket cost. The intel part is competitive for new customers.
5800x3d might age like fine wine and possibly still beat the intel part with faster ram in the long run.
