IRIS Indigo - A New Class Of Computer
Silicon Graphics' IRIS Indigo workstation represents the original blending of workstation performance with PC simplicity. IRIS Indigo has created a new class of computer called the RISC PC. Plus it offers all of the advanced 3D graphics capabilities that you expect from Silicon Graphics. But it doesn't stop there, Indigo is a lot more than just a computer. It's the concept that drives our design philosophy; one dedicated to people with extreme design, visualization, and compute needs.
In order to meet the needs of our customers, IRIS Indigo workstations implement the highest performance technologies available. At the heart of these systems is a workstation engine based upon the MIPS RISC architecture - either the 32-bit R3000A or the 64-bit R4000 processor. IRIS Indigo takes these fast CPU's and surrounds them with a system architecture that is unrivaled in the industry.
The R4000 CPU-based IRIS Indigo's system bus supports a 266MB/sec sustained transfer rate. These same IRIS Indigo workstations utilize 1MB of secondary cache to support the R4000's 16KB of on-chip data and instruction cache. These system elements combine to produce industry leading application performance.
A Level of Graphics for Everyone
Silicon Graphics has established itself as the leader in visual computing, and IRIS Indigo delivers this capability to the desktop. IRIS Indigo offers users a broad range of graphics options. On the low-end, Entry graphics provides a low-cost 8 bit color solution for those looking for a strong general purpose workstation that supports 3D. The XS family utilizes a single Geometry Engine processor to provide a higher level of 3D performance. For solid modeling applications, XZ and Elan offer multiple Geometry Engine processors and 24-bit color. All of these options work inside the same IRIS Indigo chassis, allowing users to invest in a level of technology they need while providing all the flexibility of upgrading in the future as requirements change.
Indigo Magic - Compelling New Ways to Communicate
Silicon Graphics continues to be the leader in changing the way scientists and engineers communicate and present their work. In addition to continuing to define what can be done on the desktop, Indigo provides a user environment and tools that are easy and enjoyable to work with. Indigo Magic gives users immediate access to revolutionary digital media technology through the IRIS Showcase presentation application, IRIS InSight on-line tools, and Media Mosaic end user tools (audio R video control panel, CD/DAT manager, and MovieMaker and MoviePlayer to name a few). All this combined with 16-bit, 4 channel audio and live video capabilities make working with Indigo fun.
