Re: Onyx 4/G2N - 4x1GHz/4x700MHz with G2N/Voyager/ATI Graphics

Onyx 4/G2N - 4x1GHz/4x700MHz with G2N/Voyager/ATI Graphics

Hi Nekochaners, I have continued to try various combinations of Onyx 4 chassis’s with V12 & SG2 graphics. To test that the Onyx 4/G2 (ATI Graphics with no CPUs) is pretty much a standard Chimera, I put a 4x700MHz CPU Processor board from deskside Tezro into the CPU-less G2 chassis. As the G2 has...

Re: Best workstation to start with?

Hi nekochaners, No flames or fights.... but I really do think is is hard to go past Octane as a great sgi box in terms of its combination of 64 bit irix support, modular and trouble free hardware versatility, connectivity, graphics & media flexibility and great design. Having recently been playi...

Re: "dubious" - was Tezro: now Onyx 4 - 4x1G/4x800MHz with 16G ram + V12/DCD

Hi Nekochaners, in deciding to move from deskside Tezro to rack mount Tezro, dubious has now morphed into Onyx 4 (i.e. Chimera Origin/Onyx). Here is current hinv. It took me quite a bit of effort to get to this point as I got a bunch of rack mount Onyx 4's from Mopar (mopar5150) (awesomely well pack...

Re: How do I find the Origin2000 MAC address?

Hi Nekochaners, in process of doing clean IRIX install (must be over network as I have long since got rid of CDs) and using Nekochan as resource to get netbook going.

Re: Rack Tezro/ Onyx4 V12 and UV/ IR4 Test.

Hi Mopar5150, great to see this testing. It’s just like old Dr Dave days (for those nekochaners who remember). Love the fact that you had IR4 laying about and put it into test, also love the industrial Rack trolley wheels... I remember lusting after IR4 as ultimate SGI revival target. Who knows, whe...
