we wouldnt be at all surprised if Intel shifts its stance on the desktop to meet the challenge from AMD

Intel managed to come up with a few tricks to make transistors smaller. Turns out making really small stuff is really complicated, such much so that that said tricks need a fancy, meaningless marketing name like Hyper-scaling. Intel says it is keeping up with Moor's law.
Intel marketing slides included.
Oh, and no-one mention Samsung.
( Debate topic: Is Samsung's 10nm node equivalent to Intel's? )

Certainly over the short term this rate can be expected to continue, if not to increase. Over the longer term, the rate of increase is a bit more uncertain, although there is no reason to believe it will not remain nearly constant for at least 10 years.
