If AMD can make both CPU's and GPU's, then why can't Intel do the same?

It'd be a waste of their time and money. That market doesn't have much room in it for another manufacturer.

Because they can't compete in that space. AMD does it because they bought ATI, a company who did nothing but graphics cards. If Intel wanted to get involved, they'd have to buy Nvidia.
Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

Also, Intel would try and solder them to the board, like they will be doing with their CPU's.

AMD also used to partly own the factories that made ATI cards even before the takeover.

They were aiming to for awhile but the performance apparently just wasn't competitive.

Which brings back to the endless Intel / nVidia merger rumors.
