Personally I think the problem is everyone is looking at these rumours from the perspective of having only had 3% IPC jumps on similar nodes for like 4 years now, AMD included with Zen+. This isn't a minor architecture tweak, it's a new architecture coupled with a decent node shrink.. I think we've forgotten what is reasonable to expect from that.
As far as I can tell, edging out intel on a newer better smaller process through TSMC over their old GloFo 12/14nm process with a new architecture VS Intels same iterative architecture from the last like 3-4 years still on 14nm.. is actually pretty underwhelming. Impressive given their position over the last 7 years, but frankly these are the performance gains we should be expecting at minimum not calling an over hyping dream. We aren't back to real competition until its just normal for a new CPU generation to beat the competitors last one.
