Please post your 'hinv' in the following format:

Topic: Kind of machine (O2, Octane, Tezro, Onyx2, etc.), CPU (R10k 250MHz, R12k 300MHz, R16k 1GHz, etc.), RAM, graphics option (Example: Tezro V12 4xR16K 700MHz 4GB)

Body: output of hinv -v (hinv -vm if possible) and /usr/gfx/gfxinfo.

Please wrap the output in BBCode "code" blocks to improve legibility.

I've had an O2 for some years but now finally have the space to use it so I thought I'd upgrade it a little and post the spec:

hinv -vm
Code:
CPU: MIPS R12000 Processor Chip Revision: 2.3
FPU: MIPS R12010 Floating Point Chip Revision: 0.0
1 300 MHZ IP32 Processor
Main memory size: 320 Mbytes
Secondary unified instruction/data cache size: 1 Mbyte on Processor 0
Instruction cache size: 32 Kbytes
Data cache size: 32 Kbytes
FLASH PROM version 4.18
Integral SCSI controller 0: Version ADAPTEC 7880
  Disk drive: unit 2 on SCSI controller 0 (unit 2)
  CDROM: unit 4 on SCSI controller 0
Integral SCSI controller 1: Version ADAPTEC 7880
On-board serial ports: tty1
On-board serial ports: tty2
On-board EPP/ECP parallel port
CRM graphics installed
Integral Ethernet: ec0, version 1
Iris Audio Processor: version A3 revision 0
  PCI Adapter ID (vendor 0x9004, device 0x8078) PCI slot 1
  PCI Adapter ID (vendor 0x9004, device 0x8078) PCI slot 2
Video: MVP unit 0 version 1.4
AV: AV1 Card version 1, Camera not connected.
Vice: TRE

gfxinfo -vv
Code:
Graphics board 0 is "CRM" graphics.
        Managed (":0.0") 1600x1024
        32 bitplanes
        board revision 2, CRM revision C, GBE revision B
         Monitor 0 type: SGX 1601
        Channel 0:
         Origin = (0,0)
         Video Output: 1600 pixels, 1024 lines, 60.00Hz (1600x1024_60)
         Video Format Flags:  (none)
         Sync Disabled
         Using Gamma Map 0
         Monitor Type:  SGI MultiLink

Yes, you've spotted that I haven't opened my wallet in years so I'm using a multilink adapter with a 1600sw (the 1600sw was my PC monitor for some years but now it can be with this O2 full time), not a flat panel adapter. If I can see an FPA at the right price I'll grab it. Anyone got one for reasonable cost in the UK?

scsicontrol -i /dev/scsi/*
Code:
/dev/scsi/sc0d2l0:  Disk          ModusLnkMXO3367SC800600SM108
ANSI vers 3, ISO ver: 0, ECMA ver: 0; supports:  16bit synch linkedcmds cmdqueing
Device is  ready
/dev/scsi/sc0d4l0:  CD-ROM        TOSHIBA CD-ROM XM-6201TA1037
ANSI vers 2, ISO ver: 0, ECMA ver: 0; supports:  reladdr synch linkedcmds
Device is  not ready


When I found this O2 about 6 years ago it had an R10k 195MHz and a 4GB HD so I have upgraded those already recently. CD-ROM also died and replaced. I am absolutely loving how easy these things are to swap components - making PCs look ridiculously tricky by comparison. RAM upgrade next perhaps? I seem to have the bug :roll:.

I found eventually an affordable FPA for this O2 - so here is the changed hinv -vm:
Code:
CPU: MIPS R12000 Processor Chip Revision: 2.3
FPU: MIPS R12010 Floating Point Chip Revision: 0.0
1 300 MHZ IP32 Processor
Main memory size: 320 Mbytes
Secondary unified instruction/data cache size: 1 Mbyte on Processor 0
Instruction cache size: 32 Kbytes
Data cache size: 32 Kbytes
FLASH PROM version 4.18
Integral SCSI controller 0: Version ADAPTEC 7880
  Disk drive: unit 2 on SCSI controller 0 (unit 2)
  CDROM: unit 4 on SCSI controller 0
Integral SCSI controller 1: Version ADAPTEC 7880
On-board serial ports: tty1
On-board serial ports: tty2
On-board EPP/ECP parallel port
CRM graphics installed
Integral Ethernet: ec0, version 1
Iris Audio Processor: version A3 revision 0
  PCI Adapter ID (vendor 0x9004, device 0x8078) PCI slot 1
  PCI Adapter ID (vendor 0x9004, device 0x8078) PCI slot 2
Video: MVP unit 0 version 1.4
AV: AV1 Card version 1, Camera not connected.
Vice: TRE
1600SW Flat Panel adapter board and display.

...and here is the new gfxinfo:
Code:
Graphics board 0 is "CRM" graphics.
        Managed (":0.0") 1600x1024
        32 bitplanes
        board revision 2, CRM revision C, GBE revision B
        Timing table flags:
         Monitor 0 type: Unknown
        Channel 0:
         Origin = (0,0)
         Video Output: 1600 pixels, 1024 lines, 50.00Hz (1600x1024_50p)
         Video Format Flags:  (none)
         Sync Disabled
         Using Gamma Map 0
         Monitor Type:  SGI Flat Panel 1600SW

Given I now have the display options for O2 for both MLA and the FPA, and that O2 performance is linked closely to its graphics performance, if anyone has software tests they would like me to perform to identify differences I might be able to run these. Certainly - and this is personal opinion alone - the FPA seems to give the more polished desktop experience.
