  • The SGI FAQs were at http://www-viz.tamu.edu/~sgi-faq/index.html

    This site now appears to be dead, so check the local mirrors at http://www.siliconbunny.com/mirrors/www-viz.tamu.edu/sgi-faq/index.html

  • Ian Mapleson’s excellent SGI Tech pages – the place to go for SGI information.

    Ian has performance and model information for pretty much anything MIPS-based that SGI have produced. Lots of information comparing different systems, performance information, and old SGI press releases – you must have a look through here before you buy an SGI machine.
