I ordered a 6990 from TigerDirect - their website gave no indication that it wasn't in stock until I placed the order and checked the order status - BACKORDERED. I'm pissed because I ordered all the other parts already from another vendor.

Do you know of any company in the US has a 6990 in stock and can ship immediately?

Thanks.

Good luck finding it at a common retailer...

however, check out places like hardforum, you might be able to find someone willing to part ways with one there

I've been looking for 6990s and even 5850s on [H] recently and no luck. One guy was selling a used 6950 that he claimed was "clocked exactly the same as a 6970" (which might be true for gaming, but does it have the same number of stream processors as a 6970?) for a fairly decent price. I considered buying it until I looked at the hardware comparison wiki and the $/MH/s ratio seemed very poor.

But just saying, I haven't seen 6990s anywhere because I would've grabbed at least one, and I'm currently waiting on a couple back-ordered 5850s as they're a good, reduced price and have an excellent $/MH/s ratio, IMO. But they're also nowhere to be found. A couple remain in stock for $189.99 on Newegg but that's hardly a good buy for 330MH/s.

I laughed a bit when people started talking about the supply of AMD video cards drying up ... until I tried to buy more. Seems like stocks of the 5-series cards are all but dried up (5770s are still available for a good price, $115, but those aren't gonna last forever) and even the high-end 6-series cards are being snapped up as soon as they're off the line as near as I can tell.

This is almost a blessing in disguise for me, though. Waiting on a couple parts for my third miner and then I have to take a break for awhile.  Grin

Here's a 6990, but it's water cooled:
