AMD still doesn't hold the performance crown and if/when they do it won't be significant. Intel already confirmed Ice Lake will be shipping this year using the Sunny Cove cores most likely for mainstream while servers are getting Cascade Lake which has Optane persistent memory support.
This was probably caused due to tariffs and this is probably one of their plans to get around them.
