Re: Sun CG12 / GS aka Matrox SG3-1152B graphics accelerator for 3D solid applications

Re: Sun CG12 / GS aka Matrox SG3-1152B graphics accelerator for 3D solid applications

Contacted Mr Deering. From his point of view or what he remembered the GS aka cgtwelve aka CG12 was NEVER EVER a product developed by Sun but rather by Matrox. Sun contributed only two ASICs (EIC External SBus Interface Ctrl and another on the upper framebuffer PCB as well as drivers and implementat...

Re: SPARCstation 2 papers scans/PS/PDF ?

Concerning in depth documentation about the SPARCstation 2: As expacted, until now didn't find the desired documents. But a drop of bitternet instead: I will scramble some source trees available in WWW for free. They are really helpful for to understand the HW from a programmatic point of view. That...

Re: Sunfire v880 with XVR-4000

Congratulations! Thanks also for the pictures. Have fun with this configuration. Optional try to find the " V880 z " frontend covers for a more "authentic look". What kind of application made use of the XVR-4000? All applications which make use of OpenGL because there are special...

Impossible! Even my i486DX2 could play mp3 files. Something really went wrong with your configuration, I suppose. ;)

Re: How frequently you use your SGI (in 2017)?

Don't own any SGI at the moment but at least my Sun-4/75 and PCD-4H, both with Solaris 2.4. Because both are located in different cities, I power on the available machine once a week. I had to reinstall Solaris on my PCD-4H because got problems after patching without backups. I have to find the stum...

Re: Sunfire v880

Ui! Congratulations! - "the bay"? It will be extremely interesting to see how a Sun Fire v880 with 6 ultrasparc iii cu 1.2 GHz CPU's and a XVR-4000 fitted compare to an SGI Tezro! I suppose the then compiled "V880z" will outperform the Tezro even with Soalris OE default configura...

Re: Is it Solaris 1.0 ?

That's all correct. The term "Solaris" is a combination of SunOS 5.x (SysV based) + ONC Notworking + Windows Environment, versioning beginning from 2.0. SunOS 4.1.x was the main OS line for the new SPARC architecture of that time, Solaris 2.0 was still in development. For transition from B...

Maybe you're dreaming of an XVR-2500 within your Blade 2.5k. ;-)
But this was the best with Sun and graphics: in sum all manageable. :D

Re: Sunfire v880

I've got an XVR-2500 in my Sun Blade 2500 As Irinikus wrote already, you're talking about the XVR-1200 . ;-) The XVR-2500 is an PCI-express (PCIe) board for Ultra 25/45 workstations. In basic the XVR-2500 is a 3Dlabs Wildcat Realizm 500. The Blade 1500/2500 are equipped with PCI-X, so the best offi...

Re: Sunfire v880

S*** - the Mate tea keeps me awake... The Sun Fire V880(z) is a nice system but not "really" intended to be used next to the desk or at least for many hours. If you don't plan to use it with earflaps or in another room, then better be prepared! ;) As you already stated, the XVR-4000 graphi...
