A competing product that comes close to the performance of the individual cores of those CPUs, but then has six cores or eight cores instead of just max. four would have been a very attractive CPU for me personally.

I think a product like that would compete very well while manufacturing costs would be good for AMD's profit. The added cores compared to Intel would not increase the cost for them because they would be missing the graphics part. For me, 16 threads for the price of an LGA1150 i7 sounds like a pretty sweet deal even if the cores are only roughly similar performance.
The platform will probably be rather cheap as well, if it really has integrated north+southbridge. There isn't all that much left on the motherboard at that point.
