I don't think nvidia GPUs are gimped. Unless you are saying that AMD cards are also gimped. After all, they could make a bigger core for navi right? it is planned for 2020.
So why are we paying 399$ for a gimped tiny 251mm2 core? After all, the 2060 super has a huge core (445mm2) in comparison, cost the same, and has very similar performance.
AMD must be overcharging us for such a small core right?

Look at intel's 655 (their current biggest iGPU).
It has 6 ROPs. 384 shaders.
Now look at the 1050 max-q version. It has 16 ROPs and 640 shaders.
The 655 is about half the performance of the 1050 max-q. Which also correlates to its size as well.
Now considering the 655 is using the system memory and not a faster GDDR5X/GDDR6, but it is also has direct access to CPU and system memory, it can show that intel can potentially make a very strong GPU.
Using AMD patents (which they have a deal with), if intel are really serious, with their resources, it is possible.
Will they deliver, is another thing entirely.
