I would posit that it is only for use as on a PCI Express backplane; I
don't even see how it would fit in a standard PCI Express slot (seeing
as the backplane connector is physically longer than the PCI Express
connector). Moreover, the card itself looks like a system-on-a-board (a
complete computer system on a single mainboard).
