Anyone has any idea which version would work on the following?
- Indigo2 24bit - R4400 - XS
- Octane 200
Thanks in advance.
Octane 200 does not exist. Orign 200 exists or Octane2 exists.
3D Studio was a DOS application. 3D Studio Max is/was a Windows application.
Maya, LightWave are not dependant on the hardware version but the IRIX version.
From memory I have maya 6.5 and LW 5.6 and a few other minor graphics applications running on IRIX 6.5.
A modern or even not so modern PC or Mac would eat an IRIX based SGI for lunch when it comes to pushing 3D polygons around. Even a quad 1GHz with v12 and 8Gb RAM has a hard time keeping up with a few generations old Mac... And you get 1/10th the add-on features on IRIX and new newer applications like Z brush or Modo.
SGIs are fun to play with but don't get your expectations up on any 3D applications.
