GE8 Reality Engine board

Unread postby pentium » Mon Nov 21, 2016 5:18 pm

I've owned my damn Crimson for ten years now. Ten years!
Ten years of grumbling because TriOx basically crippled the graphics head by not giving me the GE8 geometry engine board with the machine.

This Thing.

While they might of surfaced on ebay a few years ago once in a blue moon, pretty much all the 4D stuff that remains now is either recycled or in the hands of fellow SGI users and museums. I'm going to make another shout out to see if in the last few years since I last asked a board might of somewhere come available. I have the rest of the RE boardset and cabling, jut not the GE8..

He also did not seem to want my offer.

Heh, imagine if you bought that and then it fried. I'd be so pissed.
