x86 will die sooner or later the same way PPC did. You can't keep expanding upon an ancient design indefinitely.
No, it is rather highly successful. And it's not a 70's design but a modern superscalar and what not RISC thing with an old CISC programming model on top. I think we will see something like Transmeta's Crusoe emulating x86 in the not so distant future. Btw, Z80 is still in use, too.
