It is indeed - take a close look at it. It looks like a double-width 
graphics card. Without the graphics connector.

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.
