ELSA Intros GeForce 210 Low-Profile PCI-Express x1 Accelerator

Japanese firm ELSA is out with a low-profile graphics card based on the NVIDIA GeForce 210 GPU, this one uses a PCI-Express 2.0 x1 interface, for broader compatibility. It makes for an ideal match with PCs that have PCI-Express x16 slots populated. The card retains the simple PCB layout of most of its PCI-E x16 counterparts. The GPU holds 16 shader cores, and a 64-bit wide memory interface, with which it connects to 512 MB of DDR2 memory on this card. Output connectivity includes DVI and HDMI. The company seems to believe the PCI-E x1 interface to be a big incentive to its target buyers, and hence priced it at the JPY equivalent for US $137.

I don't see why they would release these at this price when low-profile 9600gt's are abundant (and cheaper) and people obviously should notice the bigger numbers on the box. :P

Because none of those are PCI-E x1 ?
