Pricewise, energy consumption and integration they do. I have an AMD A8 (quad core) laptop with integrated HD6620g GPU (on the same chip) that outperforms Intel processor (and their silly integrated graphics) in terms of energy usage and graphic performance. A8 CPU performance is boosted when 1 or 2 cores are used instead. Intel has nothing compared to that.

I would be sad to see AMD (and therefore ATI) go, as they are the only ones maintaining the balance in CPU and GPU technology market.
