Even including VAT that would make the British price higher even if Forex rate was 1:1

AMD's 12nm Ryzen 2 expected to launch in March alongside X470 and B450 chipsets
Large companies will be very wary of breaking a EULA, regardless of whether they legally have to follow it or not. This gives Nvidia quite a bit of control over what these companies do with their products. For most everyday users, it won't have nearly as much impact.
Do AMD have the budget themselves for large-scale marketing across a broad range of OEMs and system builders? I'm not so sure - at least not to the same scale as Intel so far.
This potential move by Intel will likely aid AMD however, levelling the playing field to some degree, and possibly opening new marketing channels to team red.
I noticed some RX580 cards specifically dropping in price recently too. Maybe these price hikes due to mining are finally tapering off...
Prices went up the next day by a minimum of $50. Odd. But still getting closer to MSRP slowly! I technically got under, I got mine for $505 (as opposed to $600) but it no longer comes with any games either as far as I can tell and the aluminum shroud really isn't worth an extra $100 (But $5? Sure haha).
I wouldn't worry about too much collaboration just yet. I believe this is more or less just an 'enemy of my enemy...' situation for the time being. I doubt this changes much for AMD or their attemps to undercut Intel in the long run.
The GTX 1070 Ti is built to fit a slight gap in the market, a gap that AMD Vega 56 kind of covered, but even then I'm not convinced by that logic.
Unfortunately Nvidia have been careful, maybe more so than expected, to ensure that this card slots into that slim market gap with little issue on either side. If the pricing was $30 cheaper, this may have been an entirely different story, but as it is, you'll get your money's worth, but it's not particularly game-changing. Maybe a top overclocker can unlock some serious hidden potential down the line, but that likely won't matter much to the regular customer.
