It's amazing to think that last year around this time, Nvidia was worth around 10 billion and are now approaching 80 billion. Pretty soon they'll surpass Intel.
There is no magic. Intel has some of the best (if not the best) CPU designers in the world, and the best Fabs in the world. There are also some problems that can't be solved no matter how much money you throw at them.

Also, always keep in mind: Current Market Valuation =! Money at hand.

Not that NVIDIA has any problem with any of that.

Average PC user browses web.

Even average gamer doesn't do any of the above.
Maybe you are right statistically. It still doesn't change the fact that because our mothers don't need more than 4 cores in their PC's CPU, Intel thinks nobody does.

You act like intel doesn't have other options.

Haswell-e 5820K can be found for 300 USD new, which is pretty affordable for a couple years now.

Hell you can get 10 cores for 389 off of ebay so plenty of options there.

Besides, huge core count won't be 'affordable' until it's mainstream.
It will be a few more years before that kicks off.
