SGI Onyx300 Graphics Workstations

The Onyx300 features the same modular archetecture as the Origin 300. The G-Brick provides up to 2 pipes of InfiniteReality grapics. Each pipe needs a XIO connection from an I-Brick. The left pipe (lookin from the rear) can take 2 RMs(RM9, RM10, or RM11), and the right side can have up to 4 RasterManagers. A GE16 is the standard Geometry Engine, and the Display Generators are DG6-2, DG5-8, DG5-GVO and DG5-TVO.
Each Origin 300 chassis takes up only 2U in a standard 19inch rack.
Processors from a dual 500MHz R14000 to up to as many as 32 600MHz R14000 processors!
From 1GB to 32GB of main memory per system
NUMAlink2 architecture that scales as processors are added, with 3200MB/sec bi-directional links
Can be upgraded to Onyx 300 by adding a G-Brick
2 free 64Bit PCI slots per chassis built in
Each chassis has BaseIO (IO8) with the following ports:

  • 10/100BaseT ethernet that will do over 11MB/sec in both directions simultaneously
  • 2 Ultra160 SCSI busses(1 internal, 1 external) for 320MB/s total SCSI bandwidth
  • 2 high speed serial ports each capable of 450Kbps
  • separate console port with connection to L1 controller
  • Real Time interrupt input and output ports
  • 2 USB ports
  • L1 USB Port(to connect to L2 or router)

    Onyx 300 parts and upgrades are available on Onyx 300 Parts page.
