SGI Onyx 350
The Onyx 350 is an SGI Origin 350 with a graphics subsystem. There are two separate Onyx 350 platforms that utilize completely distinct graphics hardware;
- Onyx 350 InfinitePerformance systems with Odyssey graphics. Because the Odyssey graphics board is installed inside a compute module, compute modules of original factory InfinitePerformance configurations that contain an Odyssey graphics board are limited to a maximum of two processors;
- Onyx 350 InfiniteReality systems that are connected to a separate InfiniteReality2,3 or 4 graphics module (also referred to as G-Brick).
Hard Drive Carriers
The units carry "Assy A65278-00x" on a sticker, where the "-00x" may end in any digit though "-005" seems common. This assembly number can be useful when searching for parts in the Internet. According to SR1300/SR2300 support documents at intel.com, the Intel accessory part number for the drive carrier is FXX2DRVCARBLK, UPC code "7 35858 14621 0" and "MM #" 835853. However note that there is some indication that Intel may recycle these accessory part numbers in the FXX- form between different models.
As of early 2011 these drive sleds are commonly available on eBay for US$10.
