Actually the hottest box I have around is the dual 250 R10k octane, but that should be relatively extrapolatable (ish. Given 2MB vs 8MB caches...)

I really need some independant impartial data to back me up though.

Need help advocating R16k-800mhz vs a P4

I need help in articulating the classic "why is an 800 faster than a 2.4gig?" to some bigwig bosses who don't know anything :) Can anyone point me to data, or better yet, independant benchmarks that show an R16k-800 beating a P4? (the worse the slaughter the better, the task is not really very impor...

I have 4 GDM90W11s, the e-bay model's immediate predecessor.

They're great, but the 23" Cinema Display from Apple is better.

Reinforce the desk is no joke! Resolution is quite good, 1 is hooked to Octane MXI (1600x1024) another to onyx2 (2048x1120) another to an apple G4 (1920x1080)

How are you guys setting your X backgrounds? I am using xpm and blend mode does not see the background. The closer we get this to Apple's OSX/dock the happier I will be! As is, it's pretty functional but still rough. I'd like AA icons, smooth(er) redwaring, and if possible replace the standard icons...

The problem is due to missing opengl in the si display in xinerama mode


Why is the second screen missing OpenGL?

Is there this same limitation in say a 2-pipe Onyx2IR?[/quote]

Damn, the case is the best thing to come out of SGI's product design wise since the Onyx2.

It's a pitty it's a pile of shit.

Say! What about V12 gfx in an origin chassis?

If SSI works in the O200 (and aparently O2000 as well!) then what about the V-series?

4 DVI outs.

The Onyx 350 IP gfx has a dual channel output option, what about a quad or 8channel ala MCO or DG5-8? I need 4 DVI outs from an onyx-class machine, but it can be anywhere from used onyx2 <like mine, yay!> to onyx350 :) Here's the kick, the signal MUST be 100% digital and never enter the analouge dom...

Diego: I have a bunch of defelopment stuff, e-mail me and I'll see if I have the CD/Files you need (most aren't CDs anymore, just dist directories on my O200 :)

Best!
