So Intel really doesnt have any edge anymore?
If you compare Intel vs AMD at the same pricepoint, Intel has a very very slight edge in single-threaded performance in the mainstream desktop space due to much higher clockspeeds, but this is lost as you move up in core count since Intel has to run their all core speeds lower than AMD due to poorer efficiency. In multi-threaded, AMD is winning massively across the board. Also keep in mind that most comparisons (aka anything above 9900k on the Intel side) ends up comparing Intel's HEDT to AMD's mainstream because that's how badly Intel is failing to keep up. If you look at AMD's high end desktop (threadripper), it's completely in another league.
A quick overview of the market:
Same price: 3900x vs 9900k
- 9900k leads 5% in single-threaded
- 3900x leads over 40% in multi-threaded
Same performance: 3900x vs 9920x
- 3900x: $500
- 9920x: $1200
