It was about time they got kicked in the silicones.
I don't dislike Intel. On the contrary. They have been marketleaders for a reason.
But without competition they will start to act like monopolists. They already do to some extend.
Right now everybody seems to be happy Intel finally gets some competition again.
But they will strike back. And their most important market are the professional enterprises. They still strongly rely on Intel.
The moment AMD starts tapping into that market, will be the moment it really starts to hurt for Intel. Right now it is more like a poke. But a good one and at the right time.
Intels next new architecture is planned for 2020. If nothing changes and AMD succeeds, the next 3 years will be interesting.
