The thing is that Intel doesn't design for maximum performance. Every avenue Intel has to increase performance has to be balanced by the additional mount of it consumes. Right now Intel is operating under a 2:1 rule that for every 2% in performance a design change gains it is only permitted to use an additional 1% of power (source). There is a similar restriction on die area but with a different ratio.

The implication here is that Intel likely has several tricks up its sleeve if there was a compelling reasons to increase performance, power consumption be damned. If Intel felt threatened by another architecture in terms of performance, they could loosen their self imposed design rules to remain competitive.
