SGI CEO talks about Visual Computing and GPUs

This is a blog entry by CEO Mark Barrenchea from back in August of '09. I did a search and couldn't find a previous post discussing it on the board, so I thought I'd bring it up. Here's the link: http://rackable.typepad.com/mark_barrenechea_rackable/2009/08/visual-computing.html It appears that SGI ...

Re: Dual head indy on ebay

Thanks! Now I will contact Grand Master Ian and see if he has any Irix Media for this inexperienced (but sadly, not young) Padawan

Re: Dual head indy on ebay

Fuel Workstation SGI 2048 MB Ram, 36Gb Hard Drive, 800MHz, DVD, MIPS R16000 Processor

What do you use your SGIs for?

Hello All, I am new to the community. I was first introduced to SGI systems at the age of 11 or 12 when I saw the Iris Indigo on the cover of Byte magazine. I fell in love and have admired these machines ever since. Recently, I discovered that SGI boxes were available at reasonable prices and I star...

Re: SGI + Java = good news for once...

I don't think this is a very smart course to take.[snip] while i agree with your analysis of oracle's position and strategy, i don't believe it would apply to java. unlikely solaris and oracle customer which constitute a captive customer base. java has been re-licensed under GPL so it's potentially...

Re: SGI + Java = good news for once...

Certainly good to see SGI in the news for product innovation, and not the usual troubles... BUT: I don't think this is a very smart course to take. This sort of messaging highlights a metric (i.e. who runs Java fastest) as important, without first ensuring that any advantages in this area can actual...

Re: Dual head indy on ebay

I ended up getting this. It's on its way. My second Indy.

I have recently gotten in to SGI machines and have gone a little overboard perhaps... 2 Indys, 3 Indigos, 1 Octane and 2 O2s thus far. Lots of $$ gone, but I am looking forward to having fun with these systems!
