On a turn around from earlier - AMD will now bring it's new tech to the last-gen Ryzen 3000 cpu's 
...and the % are higher than the nvidia version BAR.

The bar has just been lowered (in a good way!) for Resizable BAR, the PCI-Express graphics feature that lets CPUs directly access a GPU’s onboard memory to improve gaming frame rates. That’s because AMD just announced it’s bringing the tech to its last-gen Ryzen 3000 series processors, not just the new Ryzen 5000 chips that initially launched with the feature.

AMD originally debuted the feature as “AMD Smart Access Memory,” and you specifically needed an AMD Ryzen 5000 CPU and an AMD Radeon RX 6000 graphics card to make it work. That wasn’t a particularly easy sell, considering both have been incredibly hard to find at retail since they first debuted.

With Ryzen 3000, AMD’s actually promising up to 16 percent more performance, compared to the 10 percent both AMD and Nvidia previously offered, though it will really depend on the game. TechSpot discovered that some games could see a 20 percent boost on the AMD CPU+AMD GPU side of things, while other games actually had reduced performance.

    Intel finally selling their tech at the right price (slashing up prices), that is the only pressure I see..and with the fined Intel has to pay, we are going to see more products at discounted prices.  AMD needs to lower their CPU prices at least 5% off the current price in order to gain, if not, Intel eventually is going to gain ground.

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    Or just some pressure from AMD consumers .. I never mentioned Intel
     
    Why the about face from AMD .. something drove it, why else would they invest corp resources & change their position ?

    My guess it's purely to do with the lack of 5000 series Ryzen CPUs in the market vs available motherboards.
