How many people say "well, I just like Intel better" and buy it regardless of value, performance or innovation. They are behind, they are not innovating and for anyone concerned with price/perf they are not competing. They may be making money, but the question is how long will the world be asleep ?
I keep buying Intel because I'm primarily gaming at high hz and AMD doesn't have a product for me but you can bet your ass I'll gladly switch to AMD the second they get their latency problems fixed and gaming performance is at parity with Intel. That said, the majority of the builds I've worked with friends and family on lately have been Ryzen boxes and I really hope to see AMD knock it out of the park with Zen 2.
It's the same reason why I keep buying NVIDIA GPUs. My last AMD GPU in my main box was a 7970 because that was the last time that AMD had a competitive GPU at the high end. I'd love to throw some love towards AMD and hope they become competitive at the high end on both CPU and GPU in 2019/2020.
