There is also RTL81xxDU, apparently from 2011, a dualband device
coming in several variants (single MAC + single PHY, double MAC +
double PHY and double PHY); e.g. 0bda:8194 (single PHY + single MAC).

While probably not overly common, it was/ is (hardware-wise) a pretty
interesting device due to its support for 5 GHz[1] - actually I hoped
it to be a (supported-) RTL8192CU variant when I bought it. 
Unfortunately no driver[2] made it to staging or the proper kernel.
