There's an article about the Reality Engine in the same issue.

To accentuate the special identity of the IRIS 4D/70, Silicon Graphics' designers selected a new color palette. The machine's coating blends dark grey, raspberry and beige colors into a pleasing harmony. (IRIS 4D/70 Superworkstation Technical Report)

I used to sit in the bathroom with my SGI workstation marketing materials in 1995 for hours.... Out of order instruction set execution, branch prediction, R10k tech... it was orgasmic!

There's a Computer Chronicals episode on youtube that mentions SGI, I think it was the one on RISC processors.

I love reading these old computer magazines. Just reading up on the wacky stuff that you used to get for your machines. This particular issues has a two-page piece on Windows Accelerator Cards. :lol:

I would lust for an SGI machine from these pages alone, I think I must have read this BYTE about a thousand times before I could finally get my own humble Indy .. 'twas mostly a term for its useful life, alas, but I thoroughly enjoyed the distractions it had to offer. Man, what things could've been .. if SGI had kept up the pace .. ah well ..
