You mixed up 3080 XT and 3090 XT. One is release this coming June, one is next year. The former one will rival the RTX 2070.
The one coming next year (Navi 20 - RX 3090) is the one that is 10% faster than R7. It has 64 CUs (4096 SPs), 16GB of G6 and its is probably manufactured in EUV 7nm+ process node. The 10% make sense considering it has more CUs, and is on a more advanced 7nm+, which comes with faster clocks.

The price point indicated was $499 for next year 3090, not double of that.

As explained, the 3090 comes with more CUs (or fully unlocked GCN), and the 7nm+ probably boost better clocks than the Radeon 7.
