SILICON GRAPHICS INTRODUCES INDIGO XZ WORKSTATION; SYSTEM DOUBLES GRAPHICS PERFORMANCE OF HIGH-VOLUME INDIGO XS25Z SYSTEMS

 MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Silicon Graphics, Inc. (NYSE: SGI) today announced the Indigo XZ(TM), a system that doubles the graphics performance for the midrange of the IRIS Indigo(TM) product line. The Indigo XZ workstation features a graphics subsystem with two Geometry Engine(R) processors and is powered by a MIPS(R) R4000(TM) RISC processor.
 The Indigo XZ RISC PC is designed with the same architecture as the popular IRIS Indigo models with XS, XS24, XS24Z and Elan Graphics(TM). Indigo XZ delivers twice the performance of the XS24Z system: 150,000 z-buffered polygons and 59,000 Gouraud-shaded, z-buffered quadrangles/second. Indigo XZ graphics include a 24-bit color frame buffer, 24-bit hardware z-buffer, 1,280-by-1,024 resolution and 60 Hz or 72 Hz refresh rates. Target markets for the Indigo XZ are those requiring entry 3D solids modelling such as mechanical CAD/CAM, molecular modelling and earth sciences.
 "We have configured Indigo XZ to deliver twice the performance of our most successful mainstream systems," said Warren Pratt, vice president and general manager of Silicon Graphics' Interactive Systems Division. "Indigo XZ adds strength to the IRIS Indigo product family and further demonstrates our commitment to offer the best selection of graphics options on the desktop."
 The Indigo XZ configuration comes standard with 16MB of memory, a 432MB system disk, DAT-quality audio, a 19-inch monitor and IRIX(TM), Silicon Graphics' enhanced version of the UNIX(R) operating system. The IRIS Indigo XZ system is priced at $23,000 and is available immediately.
