Makes total sense even on the computing front. AMD cores are performant so just having good power take up less space and less heat and power, one would be insane t choose Intel.

That is outside of very specialized workloads (Database server racks) where one might choose intel to run on metal or speed up those loads with AVX512.

This looks like a paid ad. Plenty of large customers like Amazon, Google, Facebook, etc. are buying Xeons over Epyc while others are buying Epyc over Xeon. Both are happening in real-time. So are you going to make a story on "Facebook chooses Intel Ice Lake Xeons over high-latency AMD EPYC Milan"?

I very much doubt Intel has anything to compete with these multicore EPYCs, especially the 64-core EPYC....;) What good is "competitive performance" from Intel if it demands 200Ws more per server than AMD to achieve? Man, that is a mind-blowing difference. If they pumped 200W more per server into the AMD situations I can't even guess at how much faster the EPYCs would be. No one but a dunce would choose Xeon over EPYC today, imo. Well if Intel is bottoming out the price to get the business, I can see it, sure.

Paid ad? I think you have been living under a rock. Most of these companies are gradually moving away from Intel, either to AMD or to their own custom ARM based processor. Which also accounted for the steep drop in Intel's datacenter revenue this year. It is true that they are likely still using predominantly Intel chips for now, but that Intel monopoly is starting to lose its grip.
Looking at this article, I feel the same can be said about Intel's Tiger Lake processor which is one of their best right now. It is competitive with AMD's Zen 3 in terms of performance, but it requires quite a fair bit more power to get there.
