What you say is not surprising for me.

The big ones always get bigger.
Sort of. Processor development is a pretty low prediction technology. Intel's entire current line are based off of the Pentium 3. Despite years and millions of dollars, they could never get P4 to run like they thought it would. What they did learn about P4 allowed them to take P3 (which had been relegated to a 'mobile only' architecture) and go ape?&#@ with it. Without that unlikely collection of circumstances I think the processor 'wars' would be much closer than they are.
