This is more news for big servers, where a large performance is gained with multiple cores because of frantic threading.
Like gaara said, they already have this. They don't have it for meanstream/enthusiast computers because it really isn't worth the money for the performance.

No, a $300 Core 2 Duo beats out AMD's $1000+ FX-62. Even if AMD can get the performance lead with this thing, it'll be one of the worst price/performance ratios ever out. And there's no way Intel would let this slide without TRYING to do something. If they did the same kind of thing, it'd be amazingly cheaper.
2x Core 2 Duos: $600
2x FX-62s: $2,000+
Price/Performance king: Intel
