[ebay][de] 2 x Octane (not mine)

Unread postby johnnym » Sat Sep 09, 2017 8:56 am

There are two Octane's available on Ebay Germany, located in Berlin, no shipping, for 180 EUR each or offer:

http://www.ebay.de/itm/sgi-silicon-grap ... 3193173297

The pictured configuration - I don't know if it's identical for both items, though - includes:

  • later skins
  • 1 x DAT/DDS drive
  • 1 x HDD
  • Shoebox (most likely with a Gigabit NIC)
  • PSU w/silver handle
  • 1 x MXI or MXE (w/plastic screws for TRAM fixation)
  • 1 x Board w/7 coax connectors labelled bottom to top: TRIG, IN 2, OUT 2, OUT 1, LOOP, REF, IN 1 - sorry, don't know what this is, but it looks like the Octane Digital Video Board pictured in this article on page 7
  • 1 x Dual FC XIO board w/DSUB connectors

Sadly the item description doesn't give any info about the current condition of the machine. The active red LED could be just due to keyboard and mouse missing. But the graphics output looks distorted, maybe due to a wrong refresh rate? I have no idea. All in all a lot of hardware in unknown condition, so maybe a little too much is asked for it.

I'd be tempted to go have a look. Berlin is 4 hours by train and I could get my German-speaking girlfriend with me and give the machine a shot.

However, I'm out for a week (holidays in Malaysia yeay). I'll shoot the seller a question anyway.
