First off all, i am a total noob when it comes to SGI. I know the company mainly because of the 3d graphics and stuff.
Tomorrow i will get a SGI CMN A015 for free, yep thats right...for free. It was used in a television studio a long time ago.
Inside are 3 HDD of 9 gb each and the following cards: GE16, RM9 and DG5-2/GVO. (?)
Now my question to you guys is:
What the heck can i do with it??

Based what you mentioned in your first post:Skysearcher wrote:p.s. How can i tell the differen between the Onyx2Reality, or the InfiniteReality2 ?
Where GE = Geometry Engine, RM = Raster/Texture Memory, and DG = Display Generator. So you have an InfiniteReality2E graphics with the (less often seen) graphics-to-video option (or GVO, which provides direct graphics output to broadcast-component digital video devices).Skysearcher wrote:and the following cards: GE16, RM9 and DG5-2/GVO.
