Can anyone tell me why the intel core i9 9980XE processor is about double the price of the i9 10980XE processor?

It's called "Supply and Demand", the underpinning principles of Economics. What's in short supply and heavy demand is going to cost more. Since folks know that the 10th gen processors are in short supply and will not be readily available for a while, the demand for 9th gen processors is going to be higher and thus distributors and storefronts are going to charge more for them, whatever the market will bear.
