● Description

Today we get to try out the Octane from Silicon Graphics Interactive, and we don't just test it, we also beef it up with some huge upgrades from SGI Depot. Maya, OpenGL, Lightwave and Blender are just a few of the technologies and applications which benefited from the SGI series of machines and we try out as many as possible today.
