Well, that would require them to try. There was a time that AMD did (Athlon vs Pentium 4, and then the Athlon 64 vs Pentium D). The AMD FX failed to deliver, and AMD is way overdue on releasing a new chip (Piledriver came out how long ago? 2012? Intel has released Ivy Bridge, Haswell, and Broadwell since then).

If you're buying a laptop that ships with Linux (I'm looking at the Dell Precision line) they ship with the proprietary drivers installed. The OOBE experience from the manufacturer isn't the same as a vanilla install. I can't speak for the XPS 13, but I can say that my Precision M4500 runs flawless with the Quadro GPU.
