With the new Triple Keyboard Option (TKO), Onyx RealityEngine2 users can transform one workstation into three - all in a single rack enclosure. Onyx RealityEngine2 systems have revolutionized visual simulation, advanced design, digital film and video production, geosciences, and scientific visualization. Why? No other general-purpose graphics computer matches the rendering speed, compute power, and expandability of the Onyx RealityEngine2 work- station. Silicon Graphics now extends the Onyx RealityEngine2 even further by using a single system to support up to three graphics users.
The Onyx RealityEngine2 Architecture
Onyx RealityEngine2 is a graphics supercomputer that tightly couples symmetric multi-processing with the world's most advanced graphics architecture. The Onyx rack chassis offers maximum expansion. It accommodates from two to 24 MIPS R4400 RISC processors, up to 16GB of memory, up to three terabytes of disk capacity, and from one to three RealityEngine2 subsystems.
The RealityEngine2 graphics subsystem provides the highest performance and most advanced feature set available. Its scalable graphics architecture is designed for realistic interactive graphics. Delivering up to 1.6 million triangles per second and 930,000 textured polygons per second, RealityEngine2 also features real-time texture mapping, full-scene antialiasing, 48-bit RGBA color, 32-bit hardware Z-buffer, expandable frame buffer (40 to 160MB), advanced lighting models, atmospheric effects, and a flexible display generator that can drive resolutions ranging from VGA to HDTV.
The new TKO upgrade kit allows new and existing rack Onyx systems to support up to three graphics users, each with a separate keyboard, monitor, and mouse. Sharing a single Onyx system among two or three workers:
