From that Article:
.....I've seen rumors of 6-core parts with 12 threads, similar to Intel's $600 Core i7-6850K retailing for around $250 and the SR3 - potentially a 4-core part with 8 threads has been rumored to land at around $150....
If that turns out to be true and has Haswell IPC, I'll be grabbing that 6 core unit.
If something seems too good to be true, it probably is...
Assuming AMD made a CPU that could compete with Intel's $600 part, there's no way in hell they would sell if for $250. They might sell it for $500, but not $250.
