Wow all i can is wow. But yeah for that price i would see no reason even for a hardcore tech enthusiast to purchase one but if you had one man the things you could do(run a data center i guess).
Like the article ends with, can't wait for this to work down to the prosumer level. With the advances in CPU, GPU computing and SSD the future looks bright.
on tha refrence pcb these daughter boards are on could you put their i/o on tha reverse side as well dont see pics of other side ..if so couldnt you do a double sided one ..and for these $$ it would have to be a 3.0pci lane otherwise i just dont see tha point although a cachedrive off one of these would be great @14pt lifetime
You hit the nail on the head there, MSpitler. At some point you reach the limits of a PCIe X8 Gen 2 slot's bandwidth, though this cards doesn't quite hit that. Heck, go to a X16 card and you'd have plenty, though a bit cumbersome maybe.

Though I would never buy this because I personally have no use of it, I can see where these come in handy. It's also nice to see where our technology in storage space will end up.
Finally, Intel is jumping into the fray. This should create some much needed competition in this space. Will only benefit those of us prosumers.
