From last night:
It's been needed for some time now, and it looks to be great. With the software line of Xpress Pro being discontinued and cost of Media Composer cut in half, very powerful editor and hardware, and very affordable.

Very good news!
So, I take it that in order to use MojoDX, I'll need to remove my nVidia QuadroFX 3400 from my sole PCe slot and replace it with the new Mojo card? Essentially the MojoDX will become my new graphics card, etc.?

I could be mistaken, but I highly doubt that the PCI-e card that is going to be part of the new DX line will replace the GPU in your computer. If it's anything like the older Meridien hardware, there are two parts to the system: one part is the breakout box that offers I/O and monitoring connections, and the other part is an add-in card for your computer. The two parts are then connected via a high bandwidth cable. The add-in card itself is what is used for capture, transcoding, and may even accelerate effects and the like, and would work in conjunction with the CPU and the GPU.
Theoretically, the PCIe card could be the same for both the Mojo DX and the Nitris DX. I wouldn't be surprised if Avid offers all of these pieces (the PCIe card, the Mojo, and the Nitris) in both bundled configurations and ala carte. This could make some sense: the add-in card could be used with or without the I/O BOBs, for something like an offline system in which you didn't need input or output. Later on, as needed, you could add the Mojo or Nitris by cabling it up, and you'd have an online-ready system.
I don't know--this is all speculation--but to me seems like a plausible option. In any event, I'm about 99.99% sure you're still going to need a GPU

Yes: GPU = Graphics Processing Unit
