Default AMD 6990s Limited?

Hey there,
Does anyone know where to find a 6990? Everywhere I've looked they are out of stock, and not even for special order. Are they no longer making them? Were they limited edition?
Please help.

Honestly, if you want to spend that much coin I would go for a 7970. Their performance is pretty much on par, and will only increase with driver updates. And you won't have to deal with crossfire! :D

They've been out of stock for months and months. Only a few thousand were produced.
