Performance matters. Q6600 was better than Phenom 9900; it didn't matter that the Q6600 was two dual core dies. There are trade offs to everything. Intel engineered a superior technology for the time.
Beyond that, saying "never" is incredibly short sighted and naive. It makes as much sense as saying in 2011 that "AMD will never catch up to Intel IPC.". Never is a long time and you have no idea what will happen 4+ years from now. AMD could come out with an ARM or RISCV core running at 6ghz. Heck, AMD could BUY Intel in 10 years for all you know.
