Here is the Registers take on this:

As an aside:
SGI languished, and its own Intel workstations built in response were
shunned by the industry.

I remember getting one or two of these when I worked in the Special Effects
industry in Soho.
THey made the best technical choices, but it ended up with a weird
non-standard PC style machine,
where as I remember the PCI slots were low voltage, so you had to buy SGI
modem cards (etc)
as off the shelf ones would not work.
