Silicon Graphics Indy
MIPS 175MHz R4400SC CPU, 1MB L2 cache
24 bit Newport 1 / XL graphics
Original SGI IndyCam
2 drive sleds, one unused
ISDN (never tried using it though, factory sticker over connector
is still in place)
10MBit ethernet (Base2 AUI and BaseT RJ45)
video capture (digital/analogue)
full IRIX 6.2 CD set, open inventor and performer, demos, patches,
Nov '99 free software CD's. 12 CDs total.¹
plus: spare MIPS R4600PC 133MHz cpu and 8 bit XL graphics board.
still a kick ass desktop machine considering its age, far better
OpenGL than linux (no hardware texture support though), excellent for
ripping tapes to wav, webcam, capturing frames from video (not enough
oomph for full size video though). requires bigger hard disk or NFS
oh yes.... linux will run on it.
1. not original SGI but burnt copies. is legit: machine has a right
to use this software.
