AMD's main segment right now are low and mid end APU's. Maybe they can't beat Intel at highest end but then again they don't have any competition in those lower segments where users expect low price and high performance even for gaming. Which AMD APU's can deliver.
And even if the higher end CPU's aren't as fast, if the price is good, it doesn't really matter.
