The R10000 was introduced in January 1996 at clock frequencies ranging from 150 MHz to 200 MHz, but was not available in large volumes until later in the year due to fabrication problems at MIPS's foundries. The 200 MHz version was in short supply throughout 1996, and was priced at US$3,000 as a result.<ref>Gwennap, "Alpha Sails, PowerPC Flails", p. 8."</ref>

On 25 September 1996, SGI announced that R10000s fabricated by NEC between March and the end of July that year were faulty, drawing too much current and causing systems to shut down during operation. SGI recalled 10,000 R10000s that had shipped in systems as a result, which impacted the company's earnings.<ref>"Defects Revealed In SGI R10000 MIPS Systems, Revenues Hit".</ref><ref>"SGI To Recall 10,000 R10000s".</ref>
