For a while, people have been thinking that Infiniband prices are
going to be better than Myrinet. Now they've been announced: JNI's
retail price for dual 4X PCI cards is $1700, and small 8-port 4X
switches are $8000. These prices are substantially above Myricom's
list prices. Behold the power of the free market: If too much venture
capital is chasing too small of a market, everyone prices high.
