Sure, the big money is being made at the retailer side and not at the manufacturers (yet), but if AMD or Nvidia seriously would want to put an end on all of this, they easily could:
GPUs for decades were graphics cards.
Computing was an addon thrown into the game a few couple of years ago, and for gamers it plays no (99%) or little (1% max) role.

Note that this issue is far from being over.
