Codenamed "Tollhouse," the '''Altix 4000''' series was Silicon Graphics' second and last Itanium-based product family. It was composed of two models: the [[Altix 450]], a mid-range server generally limited to no more than a single full-sized rack; and the [[Altix 4700]], a high-end system for the [[High Performance Computing]] and data-intensive workload markets.

The '''Altix 4000''' family used a different approach to packaging components. Whereas the [[SGI Origin 3000]] and '''Altix 3000''' used "bricks" of 2U/3U compute packages, the '''Altix 4000''' would be built up from blade-based [[Individual Rack Unit]]s or IRUs. Each IRU can be configured with a number of "blades," where each blade can offer CPU, memory, I/O expansion, or new FPGA-based [[Reconfigurable Application Specific Computing]] ([[RASC]]) resources. Each IRU incorporates two [[NUMAlink|NUMAlink 4]] routers to handle interconnecting multiple IRUs into a larger configuration.
