I do really hope AMD makes bank on Navi with Sony and MS deals as well as midrange PC sales. I would love to see a really killer next gen, ground up arch that dominates the GPU field, and they need money to do that.
The current next gen arch after Navi may not be looking so hot for gaming. Patents show the cores are made far more powerful and wider than they are now, able to execute significantly more compute per clock. I just hope AMD can make that beefy compute power turn into gaming power too.

Looking at the AWS instance types offered, the new ones - M5a, T3a are going to be AMD EPYC only. So no wonder.
All of the old ones - T2,T3 are using Intel ones (scalable as a name), and the M4, M5 ones are using E5-2676 v3 or Xeon Platinums. The Platinums are probably really expensive for the performance they offer, so Amazon is probably changing to the much more cheaper EPYCs.
The Memory optimized instances, the R5a will also be only EPYC ones, offering up to 96 vCPUs and 768GB RAM. Almost a full CPU (if they consider SMT for vCPU as well).

Main reason for the switch just like all the other tech giants is due to the recent vulnerabilities that are slowing down their Intel machines by 5 to 30 percent. The same vulnerabilities are the reason why Cascade Lake has been delayed until March.
