6990s were sold out before bitcoin became a craze. They were a limited production line top end card. They're also a terrible $/hash buy for mining.

I had better luck with 5870s as well as unlockable 6950s. You obviously do not get the same density however they are less $/h

Exactly. These are gaming cards and probably a very, very small minority has been purchased for distributed computing.

Not to mention they cost $700 to $800 for about 600-700mhash/s, you can get two radeon 5870's for $300-$400 bucks at the cheapest & achieve the same or better.

Maybe at ridiculous overclocks that aren't stable for 24/7.

I do run some 5870s in my miners but they are all within 5-10% of normal clock range. Not even nearly 500ghash/s. Somewhat better than 5850s though (but not enough to warrant the price difference+ power consumption)

5830's and 5850's are ideal.

Maybe GPUs shortage will keep Bitcoin from growing too fast.
If this keeps growing soon we'll have mining dedicated cards, I don't like that idea at all.

1.0 to 1.3 is more realistic.

Wha?  I get 850 mhash/sec on stock voltage on my 6990.  It's overclocked to 990 on both GPUs.  I could probably hit 1050 easy.  

And the point of the 6990 should be to have an awesome gaming rig AND hash.  But I don't think that's the case for a whole of people.

What miner and/or flags are you running? Windows 7? CrossFire?

I've got two 6990's @ ~330 Mhash/s per GPU. Stock clocks, GUIMiner, switching to a dedicated Ubuntu rig tonight.

But it's horrible value for the money. I have exactly one; Due to using a massive discount at a retailer. Otherwise it would've been wasted cash more or less.

Hell, you can get same hashing performance for two unlocked 6950's and those cost maybe 50% or less.

Not so fast. Gigabyte 5870SO model kicks asses 24/7 with its 950MHz for 410-425Mhash/s depending on the miner app, but dual-fan cooling system is ... noisy. Jumps between 190 and 200W power consumption , but I'm lazy to check that with lowered memory clock (around 350MHz for stability purposes).

I thought the best price/performance card right now was the Sapphire 5850 Extreme, which is 150$ for something around 300mhash.
