Mike Holve, the guy with the cool website a lot of us have read, wrote in with a link to an SGI Press Release about the company using the new R12000 (R12K) processor running at 300 MHz in its Octane workstations. The chip is binary- and pin- compatible with the R10K, and from the press release, appears to be relativley inexpensive. Hey, I can dream, can't I? If anyone sees a press release about the actual chip, submit it and I will be sure to update the article. Update: 02/22 07:34 by J :Still no sign of a press release, but thanks to mmoore, we have a nice license plate mask.
