Boost IT visibility and business value

SGI has been having a little trouble getting its secret files back into the safe, following the escape of documentation on its new Intel workstations a few weeks back. Details of the machines have been popping up despite the company's best efforts in advance of their launch, due on 11 January. According to sources close to SGI, the information was posted on the Web by - oops - SGI as part of a test. Details were swiftly pulled, but not before a few people had got to see them. According to US paper Smart Reseller yesterday data purporting to be "rumours" has been posted at www.3dluvr.com, but the paper claims SGI has been pressuring the site to take them down, and early this morning the site didn't seem to be reachable. If SGI has been exerting pressure then one could surmise that the company believes that the data is based on its own documentation, rather than just the collection of rumours it's claimed to be. The machines will apparently be flat panel display models with 350-450MHz Pentium II and 450MHz Xeon processors, with twin CPU configurations of the PII possible, and four-way Xeon versions. ®
