Nvidia is desperately trying to develop a viable Biz model as discrete GPU cards start to be phased out and replaced with APUs across all PC segments.

And yet it is the company that makes APU's that is losing money at the moment.

Seems pretty viable as it is.

Graphene will replace silicon before APU takes over PC segment.

There will always be a need for discrete graphics cards in the enterprise sector. Unless you're a rabid 12 year-old gamer, people actually do serious work with GPU's, so it's not all fun & games.
