===RISC era===
With the introduction of the '''IRIS 4D''' series, SGI switched over to using the [[MIPS Computer Systems|MIPS]] [[RISC]] microprocessor architecture. These machines were correspondingly more powerful, able to address more memory and came with powerful on-board math capability. These machines made much of the SGI name as 3D graphics became more popular on television and film.

SGI produced a broad range of MIPS-based workstations and servers during the 1990s, running SGI's version of UNIX System V, now called '''[[IRIX]]'''. These included the massive '''Onyx''' visualization systems, the size of refrigerators and capable of supporting up to 64 processors while managing up to three streams of high resolution, fully realized 3D graphics.
