The problem in recent ones is presumably bad soldering between the GPU and board, which may not even be under AMD's or NVidia's control. I'm skeptical that we'll actually see skylake this year, but this repair program runs for a while. If I have another notebook death after that, I won't touch a Mac (notebook) with discrete graphics. Intel graphics don't have to be perfect. They just have to be close enough to mid range notebook GPUs. Even gaming notebooks rarely go past...
