I've got a rackmount Onyx with R44k processors. It's marked "test rack",
an is in a purple rack with no sides, and a hole on the side, over part
of a CPU board. As well, it's got a different LCD than the Challenge
XL's I've got; the LCD matches the one on the smaller, deskside Onyx I
It was recovered from an SGI dumpster, and probably is a prototype
machine. Unfortunately, the graphics part seems to have some problem
that keeps the machine from coming up when it's attached to the system.
Still, being a prototype/engineering test system does count for something
even if it's not 100% working. :)
