So I was compulsively bidding minding my own business on a well-known auction site recently, and stumbled upon an Onyx 4 system. It turned out the system was sold without any disk, and with the ATI video board removed, so it was actually really a diskless Origin 350. Which was exactly what I was looking for, and the price was right.

So I bought that ``Onyx4 Ultimatevision'' system, look:

Looks like an Onyx4 system with the ATI board removed, and an IO10 board instead of the expected IO9, right?

Noticed that blue sticker on the topleft corner of the left door? I didn't.

Now, what I had noticed, only to increase my curiosity about that system, was the badge:

And sure enough, being a CMN026, it's an Itanium-based machine.
However, while I had known that early Altix350 systems had been sold as Origin350, I was not aware of such a thing occuring with Onyx systems.

Now, to add to the surprise, look at the product not for shipment label on the processors, see Image

So it turns out that this machine has a 030-1951-005 Rev A IP57 motherboard, and sports two 1.3GHz Itanium II processors with 3MB of cache each.

Here is what the L1 controller had to say:

And now I need to put a SATA disk into the beast and hunt for a proper Linux system for it, until I can come with something better...

At one time I had what might have been the matching graphics module. Same Onyx4 skins with Itanium processors, an AGP riser and two ATI FireGL boards - but that one was labeled as a prototype.

Zoiks, Scoob! :shock: :shock: :shock:

I just looked at your machine room, truly impressive... :mrgreen:

Looks like you snagged an engineering system from SGI. Intel supplies sample processors to manufacturers for engineering work, hence the *SAMPLE* tag and the sticker on the CPU. I also know that before the Altix 350 was finished a lot of the internal systems just had whatever face plates they have laying around (same plastics as the Origin/Onyx 350/Onyx4). I once saw one with an Onyx 350 face plate. Oddly enough, one of my Altix 350's has the same Onyx4 skins, minus the actual Onyx4 text. Perhaps they just had a ton of those skins laying around after the Onyx4 flopped?

That makes sense. At least they put an Itanium ``Intel Inside'' sticker on the left door, to be able to tell them apart from regular MIPS-based systems.
