My Octane 2*R12k 360MHz, 1Gb, EMXI

Unread postby nongrato » Tue Oct 07, 2014 9:00 am

This is my first SGI box and to put my hands on it I had to travel nearly 700kms by train from St.Petersburg to Moscow. The specs are not top, but SGI machines are rarely found in Russia -not many companies of post-soviet Russia could afford them. Also the price was very good: 3000RUR( about 80USD) so I decided to take a chance on it. The Octane appeared to be in a nearly mint condition equipped with original "granite" speakers and external CDROM which supports sound via SCSI so no additional cables are required to listen to CD audio.

Later the system was upgraded with Octane Personal Video option and O2 camera. Few scratches on the skin were removed with a car polish for plastic. Burnt out lightbulbs were replaced with a LED:

Excellent Nongrato. My first (owning it myself) was I think either the Indigo Elan or it may have been a brown personal Iris 4d[?] I can't recall which came first. I know that of all my SGI machines, the Indigo stands as a Fav, alongside one of my Indys, and now my Octane 2. 700Kms.. oooh that's some love.

That was a deal you don't want to miss. As I told SGI boxes are super rare in Russia and the price was just a joke. Now I have tons of fun with my Octane :mrgreen: :

Forma y zvet.

That's indeed a good machine: quite fast dual R12k and MXE + 1 GB RAM: _AND_ EVO+Cam! So you can do everything that IRIX has to offer!

"Shape and colour" - it is a poster from an arts exhibition.

Yep, I'm very happy with that EVO thing. It was a good investment - huge fun factor for a relatively low price. At the right bottom of the photo in the first post you can see a VHS player connected to the EVO. I use it to digitize my old tapes. For example,a tape from my promotion party 15 years ago :D

You can also plug in a DVD player or your favorite game console:

or send a video to an external device:

Also it is possible to make your O2 camera accessible via OutBox service, but I'm not gonna post a link here, sorry ;)

Yes, you're right. I nearly run out of memory while rendering like 120 frames (640x480) into flipbook in "Shake". So I will consider an upgrade.

She knows where she likes to be. In winter she sits behind the G5 exhaust fans and soaks up the heat.
