I'm about 95% sure that ARM will win. x86 is more than likely going to die out.
Look at the CPU power we have now, on 45 and 32nm. Imagine getting smaller, like 28, 12, etc. I think that x86 could do it. I mean, it's entirely possible.
But then again, we're a ways from those processes and don't even know if silicone based wafers will work on that fine a process.
ARM might win out in mobile, I cannot see it winning in desktop/home based systems though.
