Default Sapphire 4890 atomic discontinued?

Just wondering if the card was discontinued. I managed to snag one from these forums a couple months ago... like it so much that I'm planning to have my 2nd build use the same card... cept it feels like I'm hunting for a ghost

I read a couple other posts about looking for sapphire cards, but they didn't help too much... did a bunch of googling and found only toxic cards :(

Anyone know any sources?

You have one very, very rare card. From what I hear, there was one shipment made to major retailers and that was it.

thanks for the info, now that my hopes are dashed there, would getting a 4890 toxic-->OC to similar clocks perform the same? Club Overclocker - Sapphire HD4890 1GB Atomic Review is the only bench I found with kinda what I'm looking for... maybe I should hold out till 58xx instead :(

I sent an email to Sapphire asking about retailers that carried the card... none left in North America, was told to look in Europe =/ any pointers?
