Wanted: RM9-64 Raster managers for Onyx2

Unread postby jebmayers » Fri Nov 03, 2017 1:09 pm

Hi all,

Does anyone have 2xRM9-64 Raster Managers for an Onyx2 for sale?

Alternatively 6 RM10s or RM11s ;- although I think that might bankrupt me! ;o)

Cheers

Jeb

Hi Jeb,

if mopar5150 would sell me two of his RM11's for a reasonable price (hopefully still waiting for answer... :?: ;) ) i could sell you my RM9's... :)
Otherwise there are some on ebay currently, IMO not too expensive...

Hi Michael - yes that sounds like a plan. I was tempted to see what mopar5150 could do also, but to go full RM11 I would have to replace the 4xRM9's I already have.

I assume you can't mix RMs in the same pipe? i am guessing that you could have a IR2E Pipe and an IR3/4 Pipe in the same system though? Anyone know for sure?

Hi Jeb,

that's exactly true, you can't mix different RM's in the same pipe, but it is possible to mix pipes with different RM's in one system.
Because i only own a deskside ONYX2 i don't have to reflect about such problems, there is only space for one pipe with max. two RM's.

Thanks for confirming that. It does potentially give me a few more options ;o)

Looks like I am a bit behind on my emails. :D What is a reasonable price for RM-11s these days? The IR4 g-brick I have will likely get parted out since there are no real buyers out there for it.

Thanks,
John
If the thing isn't on fire it's a software problem.

Hi John,

i think the market for complete pipes would be very small nowadays.

As an example, i'll observe this offer for an RM11 on ebay since a while (it's not sold for months...):
https://www.ebay.com/itm/SGI-RM11-Raster-Manager-for-InfiniteReality4-Graphics-w-1024MB-Texture/272615424666?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

I'll send you a private message...

Michael
