The '+T' indicates an additional high speed RDRAM texture board which gives 4MB of texture memory, which is practically indispensable, though quite expensive and fragile. The SI/SE+T has one texture board while the MXI/EMXI has 2 texture boards, however, the 2 boards in the MXI/EMXI do not double the available texture memory to the system. It just doubles the texture performance.

Later Octanes and Octane2s support the [[VPro]] graphics board series, designated 'ODYSSEY' (ODSY). The first [[VPro]] series cards were the [[V6]] and [[V8]]. The main differentiator being that the [[V6]] has 32MB of RAM (unlike the MARDI GRAS option, framebuffer memory and texture memory come from the same pool) and [[V8]] having 128MB. Later, the [[V10]] (32MB) and [[V12]] (128MB) were introduced. The main difference with the new [[VPro]] [[V10]]/[[V12]] series is that they had double the geometry performance of the older [[V6]]/[[V8]]. They also do not have the [[V6/V8_Pixel_Clock_Issues]] that can greatly impact usability of V6/V8 cards on some monitors. [[V6]] and [[V10]] can have up to 8MB RAM allocated to textures (2X more than the textured-enabled MARDIGRAS options), while [[V8]] and [[V12]] can have up to 108MB RAM used for textures.
