Re: SGI IRIX and computer graphics currently? What that should i use ?

@RobhG Some questions... Do you working commercially on CGI content? If "yes": Do you have some kind of (external/separate) support (person/company) for you Octane2/Tezro or setup? So do you have then enough spare parts (HW) just in case you have some unplanned downtimes/dropping-outs? I s...

Re: SGI IRIX and computer graphics currently? What that should i use ?

@RobhG The HW shouldn't be the starting point for your decision, even if it seems you prefer SGI (IRIX) workstations. I recommend to look at what you want to achieve (result of you work). Then take a look at the software options (vendors, applications) with there individual feature spectrum and requ...

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: 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...
