wonderful eBay (3)

I won this auction a while ago and today it arrived! Two big heavy boxes...

 

Uhoh, it's a SGI!

 

It's an Octane2, 1.4Xbow, Cherokee PSU (for V-Pro graphics).

 

It's quite a light model, 2x250MHz R10000, 2MB cache, 1GB of system memory and V6 graphics but it also came with Maya and Pixar Renderman (official licenses)

 

The CPU's, memory and graphics can be updated through time. I'll wait till the better options (also) go for scrap money (on eBay), for now, I've got enough to play with and enough to learn.

 

Old Octanes and new iPhones
