Intel had years to change nodes, yet they cannot do it desktop-wise. Of course they will leap forward. As AMD will leap next time. "Especially outside of low to mid-end market." Check how many % of PC owners buy high-end GPUs (1080ti-2080-2080Ti) and how many buy cards below those. Fortunately AMD had competition to offer up to the mid-high segment after R300 (RX 470, 480, 570, 580, Vega 56) that had better price-performance ratio. Just people thought AMD cards are still for egg frying (after the R9 290-290X reference models' 90-95). However this was an absolute urban legend as the mentioned reference cards were about 10 degrees cooler than the R9 cards. 80-85 degrees for a reference card is absolutely good. And of course the real problem was there were low stock numbers at the beginning. Other problem was the mining craze that hit AMD card prices much more. And the fourth thing is AMD had worse drivers earlier (many years ago) which remained another urban legend up until the last years. However since the end of the Catalyst era many things changed: they started releasing Catalyst drivers at the end more frequently, and the drivers since Crimson were much better in quality, plus NV driver quality got worse since Crimson, so the drivers are equal in quality and quantity today.
