You are looking at charts only which rarely tell the full story. When you pay $1000 for a GPU, the last thing you want is to get 50% of its potential in new games due to missing or faulty multi card profiles. A single GPU card with almost as much performance would (IMO) arguably be of better value since it will suffer from none of those issues.
Under no circumstance should the perf / $ ratio improve either. Only when new cards are on the VERY near horizon will discounts be started. That's a hallmark of a healthy market. If midlife cards were being discounted, it would be something to worry about.
