    Observation and opinion: Given consistent IPC generational improvements and that their next-gen 7-nm process targets a 5 GHz clock rate, AMD’s Ryzen/Zen architecture is on target to close and perhaps exceed Intel’s single-threaded performance:

    … And there is also an interesting article about the SnapDragon 850 for future Windows 10 PCs at the end of the page on the link you mentioned:

    https://www.windowscentral.com/qualcomm-snapdragon-850

    Statement from Qualcomm:

    Finally, as Qualcomm remarks themselves, this is only the beginning of a "multi-year effort." Rumors of a "Snapdragon 1000" powered by the new Cortex-A76 processor in 2019 promises performance rivaling an Intel Core i5 CPU. That paves the path for "real" PC laptops with the expected performance of Intel, but all the benefits of ARM.

    Also from the same article:

    Whereas Qualcomm was touting "beyond all-day battery life," which proved very accurate in my HP Envy x2 review, the Snapdragon 850 now boasts "multi-day battery life."

    Let's hope this is finally true :)

    Most often, CEO projections are optimistic and dream-filled compared to reality. If Intel is aiming to keep AMD under 20%, that means they are internally tracking projections that are far worse. Realistically, I personally predict AMD will grab 20-40% next year’s of the CPU market volume since EPYC has 48 cores at 7nm. Remember that Intel’s best server processor has 28 cores, a 42% disadvantage below AMD’s next-gen EPYC. Add to this the fact that Intel is stuck on a 14-nanometer process until late 2019 at the earliest, while AMD will have a cooler, higher clocked, more power efficient 7-nanometer process in early 2019. The sum total spells a nightmarish 2019 for Intel since they will have no ideal way to compete strongly in the three primary indicators of price, performance or power.
