No chance in hell, a slight price cut may hit, but it definitely won't be anything that drastic, @least not for now.(remember, nvidia already made a large price cut on the vanilla 780 just a few months ago)
Nvidia won't cut prices on the flagship line until A.) 8xx Maxwell has come to market &/or B.) market share starts slipping. C.) Mantle is live
on 20+ games & growing, & they start losing game contracts. Right now it's only on BF4, the gaming world is much larger than the player base of BF4. The next game it will come to is thief, which doesn't hit for another 5-6 weeks. After that it's going to be a number of months before another Mantle Title releases. You have to remember that nvidia holds an overwhelming majority of the enthusiast GPU market, & those numbers don't even include the enterprise market. It's also silly to think they haven't been plotting how they will respond to mantle.
As Maarten said, there are no losers in this battle. Nvidia will have to actually release powerful mid grade cards (look up what was supposed to be the GTX680) Microsoft will have to reform directX. Oh, & intel, that's really the wild card here. Predicting what they will do is probably the hardest of all.
