Intel still cares about instructions per clock, which MAME cares deeply about and no other software that normal business/consumer users run notices. (The CPU makers won the war against MS Office being made slower each release a decade ago). AMD decided that since only emulators and high-end content creators (video editing, music production, CGI modelling and rendering) care about instructions per clock they weren't going to bother competing in that field and would simply try to make cheaper chips with more cores.
