How is adding faster memory going to help Nvidia? Their products are still way overpriced and Navi is going to kill them there!
If the gpu is memory starved then faster memory will unstarve it resulting in better performance.
When you have the best product and no competition you can charge higher prices.
It is yet to be seen how an unknown product (ie NAVI) will affect anything nor is it known at what price point Navi will appear. I think it is foolish to expect AMD's 2080ti killer (if there is such a thing) to be priced much less than its competition.
