As an (in)famous Portuguese PM once said, "Debts are not to be paid, they're to be managed" - while it might sound highly irresponsible, it has some sense behind it. At the right interest and maturity, going into more debt could be a sound strategy.
The concept is that you never pay the debts. You pay one at the same time you get another one. Hopefuly with less interest.
IIRC, within the context of that answer is that you shouldn't constrain government spending in order to pay debt, as that would choke the economy and make everything worse, as it did for many countries in the post 2008 crisis. If AMD has the cash flow necessary to keep implementing its plans, a reduction in higher interest debt can be a sound business practice.

I doubt I’ll have any strong reason to replace my 7700hq+580 laptop in the next five years but those do sound great.

It's somewhat ironic that you can make the fastest AMD CPU even faster by running it on an Intel OS:
One of the interesting takeaways from my pre-launch briefing with AMD on the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X was AMD representatives actually recommending Clear Linux for use on this 64-core / 128-thread HEDT processor and the platform to which they've found the best performance. Yet, Clear Linux is an Intel open-source project. In any case, here are benchmarks of how Clear Linux performs against other Linux distributions on the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X within the System76 Thelio Major. And, holy crap, with the Threadripper 3990X on Clear Linux I managed to build the x86_64 default Linux kernel in under 20 seconds!
