Intel won't drop the prices, but etailers/retailers will be forced to do something to prevent inventory glut. I strongly suspect that there will be at least a temporary oversupply of 6700k CPUs when the 7700k launches, or there may be some deals to move that inventory before the 7700k hits.
Remember the 4790k got below $300 for a bit around the 6700k launch and only came back up afterwards (especially because of 14nm CPU supply shortages). It will get cheaper to get a Skylake.
