The Silicon Graphics Prism was a series of visualization computer systems developed and manufactured by Silicon Graphics (SGI). Released in April 2005, the Prism's basic system architecture was based on the Altix 3000 servers, but with graphics hardware. The Prism used the Linux operating system and the OpenGL software library.
Three models of the SGI Prism were Power, Team and Extreme levels.
- The Power level supported two to eight Itanium 2 processors, up to 96 GB of memory and two to four graphics pipelines.
- The Team level supported 8 to 16 Itanium 2 processors, up to 192 GB of memory and four to eight graphics pipelines.
- The Extreme level supported 16 to 256 Itanium 2 processors, up to 3 TB of memory and 4 to 16 graphics pipelines.
