I was thinking the same thing. I was tempted to get a 6990 but I think I will just get another 6950 and crossfire, if I need to. I max every game out now with a 6950 overclocked and unlocked.

price as expected

gtx 590 will be $1000USD easy

to those expecting smaller price tags - you are forgetting these are AMDs and Nvidias flasgship cards - designed for 'hardcore' gamers (just like intel's planned K series) - so if you have a problem with the price just go with a cheaper solution easy as that

Can you still get 6950's in a reference design that can be unlocked?
If so, i cant imagine why youd pay a grand for an all in one package UNLESS, as stated above, you have limited PCIE slots.
Id really like to have a 6990, but at the $1000 pop, lets face it, crossfire is the way to go.
This feels oddly close to the situation we saw with the ASUS Ares...

That doesn't make much sense Intel's K series chips are cheap compared to what you're getting.

That's not the US price.

It will be 600-700$ in the US. Anyone smart enough, should get HD 6950s and unlock.

The GTX 590 will likely be 700-800$, because they're not going to sell for any more.

There are some people who would like to xFire and stick an old Nvidia card in there for PhysX (using the hack). Finding a board that can fit three cards with some space in-between for air flow is difficult and pricey.

These cards have their purpose.
