Not necessarily. Let's take this scenario:
Let's pretend Newegg bought 1000 GTX 780ti cards from Nvidia for $500 per card. They then intended to sell them for the market price of $650 per card for a profit of $150 each.
Now Maxwell has launched. The market price for the 780ti is (just to pick a number) $400. Newegg knows they can cut prices down to $400 and continue selling the same volume they were before, but now they're taking a $100 loss per card.
Since GPUs don't take up much warehouse space compared to their value, Newegg can continue to list the 780ti GPUs at $650 and wait to see if anyone buys them. Or they can drop them to $500 to accelerate the clearing of stock while still not taking a loss.
The marginal cost of keeping a GPU listed is near zero, so Newegg does not have a substantial incentive to cut prices on their Kepler GPUs. They may still do so in order to clear warehouse space if needed, but I doubt it.
