"Amid continuing company turmoil, SGI has released two new Intel-based workstations, its first since the company's ambitious 320 and 540 models flopped in 1999."

"The new models, the first in SGI's revamped workstation strategy, are a key part of SGI's hopes to recover from its financial malaise and return to its earlier days of graphics glory. But the Mountain View, Calif. firm, famous for the technology behind the visual effects in films ranging from "Jurassic Park" to "South Park," has a long way to go."

"More modest hardware designs are part of the company's recovery plan. The new 230, 330 and 550 models use a less expensive and much more conventional graphics subsystem than the customized designs of their predecessors, the Visual Workstation 320 and 540. The new machines either come with Windows NT or Red Hat's version of Linux."
