HD 6950/ GTX 570 Pricing- Am I Missing Something?

With all of the exposure that the 6950=>6970 BIOS flash success has been getting on enthusiast sites, coupled with the safety net of the dual-bios feature, I had hoped that there would be some heavy pressure on NVidia and their partners for some price drops on the GTX 570.

From looking at newegg I am seeing price drops on 6950's (several available for $280 after MIR), whereas it looks like 570 reference cards are largely selling for more than the $350 MSRP... what gives? I suppose I may be overvaluing the relevance of BIOS flashing for the general market, but I am a little disappointed to be honest.

Nvidia looks at the flashing of the HD6950 as a problem that will go away, so why lower the prices when they are still selling cards.
