Considering the original Octal drive costs $100K, the next gen one will be 1.5x - 2x more expensive.

Why? it wouldn't have any improvement whatsoever.
PCI Express 2.0 x16 = 8 GB/s
this card = 6.7 GB/s
And all fusion io SSD's are all unbootable. OCZ, supertalent and photofast pci-e are all bootable.


Depends what your doing. Run ESXi and put all your VM's boot VHD's onto the IO-drive, *poof* instant boot-ability. If your spending that kind of cash then your not building a gaming rig, your building something for data processing.

Why make it so long, it wont fit most cases, wouldn't it be better to just make it wider like with videocards? or offer the card in a long configuration as well as a wide one.

It's not designed for a ATX case, it's designed for a full length rackable server. It's low-profile could allow it to fit into a 1U chassis.

Long card with a long price.... but, I've seen what it does. the price is "somewhat" justifiable.... if I may say....

the messed up thing though.. 10 years from now, that card will be obsolete, and we will be able to afford cheaper and better performing ones.

Im not so sure. that's a pci2 device, being released after the last manufacturing run of pci2 intel (maintstream/server) processors.

might be relatively "cheap" (meaning mercedes benz level cost, instead of bentley)
