Again, when were any consumer products "ready" ?
This is not that kind of case. We're talking extremly buggy and impature OpenCL implementation yet from AMD.
Fusion might eliminate discrete graphics cards entirely

Why would it? Fusion will only be lowend to midend.

On the architecture side, AMD retains its 5-dimensional vector calculation units; only one component is able to handle complex functions (such as sine, cosine, division, logarithms, etc.). The other four are limited to simple functions such as addition, multiplication, and multiplication combined with addition (MAD).
This architectural flaw adversely affects the performance of complex calculations such as those used by Folding@home. Fortunately, this type of architecture is otherwise very effective for 3D rendering, some BOINC projects, and simple mathematical operations.
