SILICON GRAPHICS PLANS SYMMETRIC MULTIPROCESSING ON THE DESKTOP WITH FUTURE INDYs, INDIGOs

By CBR Staff Writer

Silicon Graphics Inc plans to move its Indy, Indigo and the Indigo 2 into the symmetric multiprocessing realm over the next year or two, using next-generation implementations of its MIPS Technologies Inc subsidiary’s R4600 64-bit RISC microprocessor. The Mountain View, California company is also developing a low cost, multimedia version of the R4200 with Toshiba America Electronic Components Inc, which will be targeted at the consumer electronics market, and which it will include in the arcade games and games consoles it is developing for Nintendo Co. In addition, Toshiba America is working on a new 50MHz 32-bit R3000 part for the multimedia market, running at 40 MIPS. Silicon Graphics claims 2,000 Challenge servers have been installed since they began shipping last summer – Power Challenge systems are due this summer.
