Most people who buy PC's don't look at CPU benchmarks, etc. They look at marketing info. "4.2Ghz 8-core AMD FX Processor" looks a lot better than "3.8GHz 4-core Intel i7 Processor". In addition to looking like the more powerful computer the AMD system will be cheaper than the Intel system.
AMD chips are ALWAYS cheaper than intel, yet they only have a small market share. This was true even when they had better products. Now they have much worse products and are more expensive than better cpus.
