If they release hex-core processors at several price points, they in a roundabout way may challenge it. I think Intel needs it's head examined for releasing a single hex-core chip, at a single huge price point. Obviously AMD isn't going to release any single chip that can compete with gulftown, but in terms of market, they may be able to steal a bit of it with a wider variety of hex-core chips.
