Well, just Concurrent with the RS6000 was the Power Visualization System
(PVS) that used multiple i860's (up to 32 in parallel) and HPPI RAID to
do real time volume visualization kinds of things.
Their marketing could've really benefitted if the US had spent a bit more
on Science R&D, like by keeping the Superconducting Supercollider
project going, for example.
