Milking it is the same losing strategy Intel used, and now look where they are at... If Intel kept ramping up core counts AMD would have NEVER caught up, and even Ryzen1 would have been laughed at. Instead Ryzen1 was revolutionary for bringing 8c/16t to the masses (even if it lagged behind single thread), and now Ryzen4000 looks to completely take the performance crown from Intel in ALL areas. AMD is working on moving to 7nm+ (EUV) with their GPUs and that could make a massive difference, especially since AMD is pulling in serious money now thanks to the success of Zen, so have more R&D money to properly compete with nvidia. Nvidia would be stupid to underestimate AMD right now.
