"SGI today announced a reduction in price in its recently
announced Silicon Graphics 230 visual workstations running Windows
NT and Linux operating systems. The family of workstations
announced last month feature the Silicon Graphics 230, Silicon
Graphics 330 and Silicon Graphics(R) 550 models. The Silicon
Graphics 230 workstation is the first of the product family to ship
and was originally priced at $2725 (U.S. list). With today's price
reduction, an entry-level 230 workstation can now be purchased for
$2,420 (U.S. list), an overall savings of 11%. Prices for
higher-end bundles were reduced by as much as 13%."
"Today's aggressive price move reinforces SGI's industry leading
position in the entry-level graphics workstation market," said Greg
Goelz, vice president of workstations and Intel processor-based
servers for SGI. "Our new streamlined operations allow us to
continue to push pricing down on our new workstations, and deliver
affordable visual computing solutions to our customers."
"The Silicon Graphics 230 workstation accelerates OpenGL API
graphics functions such as hardware transform and lighting, texture
mapping and anti-aliasing, allowing users to bring increased
realism to 3D models. These features are essential in the
professional Windows NT market space, and are available for the
first time on a workstation for Linux users. The new systems
are based on Intel Pentium III processors and have been certified
for the Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 and Red Hat Linux 6.1 operating
systems. The 230 workstation was created for technical and creative
professionals in the digital content creation, computer-aided
design, government, medical and scientific research markets."
