Won't happen. No dye space for texture memory. Heck, even 2 2D-buffers of 1280x1024 is 10MB. If the cores were well-designed RISC like ARM, sure, you could fit 100 ARMs on a C2D dye. But for every meg of video RAM they'd lose huge chunks of space for pipeline parallelization, which is Intel(et al)'s real advantage.
