    Intel is mainly focused on power saving/efficiency for laptop chips. The laptop market dwarfs the PC market, so thats probably why they are not focused much on PC performance.

    The laptop market is the biggest part of the PC market, but it's definitely a part of it, not a separate thing. If the Zen efficiency numbers are real (worst case scenario for AMD, same efficiency with Intel), then Zen+Vega APUs will more or less make the mainline Intel laptop CPUs obsolete.
