Not to mention the fact the 680, not on sale a week, and the prices have gone up. So no, you really won't see the 7900 price drop for awhile sadly.
I think it's pretty cheeky of nV, they put out a card which was originally not meant for the single gpu flagship position in that very slot because they could. That's not the part I have a problem with, they did make a great card and it performs at the high end, makes perfect business sense to do so. My issue is that they weren't satisfied enough with that measure and now because of demand they are pushing the price up even more, they're making a killing already :/
Wouldn't be surprised if it was all very deliberate, the launch mrsp featured heavily in every review, now that all major sites have the reviews out, price creeps up.
