their only purpose is for intel not to be a monopoly.
amd releases like the threadripper are a meme so intel cant withhold their technology further to milk the existing ones for phase three >$$$ profit
so basicly they are controlled opposition where intel has a cuck -> amd that tries to get up to intels lvl m8,<- and can therefore measure the exact headstart they have.
amd: releases new cpu's
intel: ooh look we have much better designed 6 core mainstream cpus laying around
tl;dr: they are in cahoots
