Pretty sure it also had something to do with intel having no competition until alder lake, and even then while alderlake is faster it has to butt-chug wattage to do so.Yeah it's fine for 90% of people, but just like in the comparison with NVIDIA/Intel, I find AMD is certainly fast and efficient, but there's drawbacks. People who don't really do much with their systems except game wouldn't notice, most of the time, unless it's a particularly egregrious AGESA bug and they have never updated their BIOS, or something like the USB issues/bad 1% lows.
I'd say the 5800X3D is pretty much the only AMD CPU i'd currently recommend, it's on mature AM4 AGESA with most if not all the bugs finally squashed, it's a mature revision of Zen3 too, so the hardware stuff is all patched and IMC quality etc is pretty solid.
Zen 4 was a disappointment on that front, although its 65 eco numbers are very promising and I look forward to their mobile parts...
