Why has AMD never bundled dCPU and APU with their own dGPUs?

Ironically, my AMD desktop (Athlon II X3 435) from 2010 has an integrated on board nVidia GeForce 9200.

Recently there has been a lot of commentary in the Anandtech Video card forum about how Nvidia's GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti (set to release Oct. 25th) will greatly help pre-built desktop increase their PC gaming capability. (re: the card does not need a PCIe power connector despite its strong projected performance).
......
Why not rebates for cpu, gpu, ssd, ram bundles.

My old AMD A64 X2 3600+ work PC had nvidia Geforce 6100? on the motherboard, and a Zalman alcu flower cooler to let it run quietly. It was great for its time. Here's hoping Zen brings back competition.

Here is a potential PC that with GTX 1050 Ti or GTX 1050 could be used as baseline comparison for various DIY FX + RX dGPU bundles:

$399.99 free shipping Acer Desktop PC Aspire T ATC-710-UR61 Intel Core i5 6th Gen 6400 (2.7 GHz) 8 GB DDR3L 2 TB HDD Intel HD Graphics 530 Windows 10 Home 64-Bit

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883101452&ignorebbr=1





It is fairly small at 27.5 liters as well (only slighter larger than the Fractal design core 1000 uATX case which is 26.1 liters. It even has a drive cage mounting system that is a very similar to the Core 1000).
The price has increased to $459.99 plus $1.99 shipping.

Currently this is still the lowest price Skylake Core i5 full size desktop on Newegg.

AMD would actually need something on the CPU side that people want, right now they just dont. i dont even know why they still make CPU's, if Zen fails they likely wont after that.
