What's so special about Thai Elite visas?

I would like to find out more information regarding the Thai Elite Visa. I heard it costs one million baht and is a multiple-entry visa valid for 10 years. Is this correct?

The Immigration Bureau issues holders of the Thai Elite Card a multiple-entry permit that allows them to stay in Thailand for five consecutive years.

Although holders of the Thai Elite Card do not need to leave the country on visa runs, they must report to an immigration office every 90 days to register that they will stay for another 90-day period, which costs 1,900 baht for each 90-day period.
