It might look good to some people but increasing prices without any real reason is the best way for big customers to think twice about buying from you again.AMD is going to sell everything Epyc they have, so it's just a function of how much they can supply. The "good" thing for Intel is that it appears AMD is so short Intel doesn't need to cut prices. AMD is instead jacking up their prices.
Intel has been swallowing the extra cost getting a lower margin instead of increasing prices for the customer because that makes it super easy for any company to re use their previous budget plan without having to think about it at all.
At least for the mainstream CPUs, I have no idea about pricing in the server class.
