I think people have short memories and have been far too spoilt from the price wars resulting from the 4000 series cards, People will be in for a rude awakening next gen if they expect it to continue if one card signifigantly outperforms one another
Either way prices will drop, other companies will push out their 1ghz models, but why wouldnt they charge a premium, its stupid to expect them not to

Or not,since all the cards that are available now, are very capable of running the current line of games. And I don't see any futuristic 'DX12' game, that totally bottoms out the current generations of video cards. The truth is, that they want to sell cards even if everybody does have a current generation card in their PC. They lure you into a buy, by offering four frames per second increase in game performance.
The problem is that the games do not have all the bells and whistles we wanted, remember the Ati and Nvidia demos. Where is all the eye candy, like rain fluidly running down a bump mapped wall (like Ati's toy shop), stained class windows magic, fires and smoke you walk into and it moves around you, the dynamic cloths, wavy hair and all that stuff our videocard can do.
so where is it?
