It is indeed - take a close look at it. It looks like a double-width

Takes a lot of power too - I would nudge anyone thinking of going for
these seriously to look at the external box with the ribbon cable
connector. If an internal fit, you'll need a case with the room for a
card like that plus a beefy PSU.
