I think you are overestimating Intel's influence. Atom came, Atom left. Dumped in the market for very little $, functional Windows performance with power consumption suitable for fanless pc sticks, fanless tablets and even phones.
What happened after the flood of those chips? There are only a few left selling in mini pcs, and still some 2015 era cherry trails floating around. I think they are great but apparently not enough others do. The OEM push was a failure because people didn't want them.
Intel can take some gt1030 level dgpu marketshare with their igpus (as can AMD), but if they don't have good power use or largely universal stability the -know littles/don't want to mess with its- who just want to buy a regular laptop that can play games close to a console aren't going to be interested in some relatively buggy new dgpu setup. Serious gamers that spend a lot of time away from home might, but then they will shop more on price/perf or just perf. People that build their own pcs will beat laptop price/perf with desktops.
If Intel can beat Nvidias driver team out of the gate I'll be really surprised. I think they have a better chance winning on the basis of hardware. I hope AMD starts to compete but they still seem pretty overpriced in mobile.
