Probably because they actually have a busboard product. The Shark was just another companies product with an Elbox label on it, and is no longer available.

If that was the case, just where exactly are they going to get a bunch of Sonnet cards from? I doubt Elbox having been stockpiling them.

They probably had a particular PCI card in mind when they decided to implement 3.3v, my guess would be a SiI SATA card.

Edit: The Sonnet Crescendo/7200 appears to be a 5V card anyway.
