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.
most people in store now look at WEI scores.
