SGI Onyx4 Graphics Workstations

The Onyx4 Graphics Workstation features the sames modular archetecture as the Origin 350 but adds ATI FireGL graphics. Each Onyx4 chassis takes up only 2U in a standard 19inch rack with the base system requring 2 chassis(one compute module with PCI for the IO9, the other with AGP slots for FireGL graphics).
Processors from a dual 600MHz R16000 up to 32 1GHz R16000B each with 16MB Secondary Cache!
From 1GB to 8GB of main memory per chassis, 64GB maximum per system
NUMAlink3 architecture that scales as processors are added, with 3200MB/sec bi-directional links
On the back of each compute module there is:

  • 1 serial console port
  • 4 high speed serial ports
  • 1 NumaLink3 port
  • keyboard and mouse ports
  • 1 XIO port

    Each compute module has 4 PCI-X 3.3V seperated on 2 busses one 100MHz the other 66MHz
    The base compute module has an IO9 which has the following ports:

  • 10/100/1000BaseT ethernet
  • 2 Ultra160 SCSI busses(1 internal, 1 external) for 320MB/s total SCSI bandwidth
  • Real time interuupt input and output ports

    They can have hot swapable redundant power supplies.

    Onyx4 parts and upgrades are available on Onyx4 Parts page.

    Onyx4 systems come with a fresh full installation of IRIX6.5.27m. Media is not included unless otherwise noted. The latest Freeware can be loaded on request.

    Onyx4 systems come with a 90day(from receipt) warranty that covers the hardware against failure. A 12 month warranty is available for an additional 10%.
