SGI and IRIX If there is one company out there that embodies "former glory", it just has to be Silicon Graphics Incorporated. Once one of the most well-respected high-performance computer and software makers of the world, it is now a mere shadow of its former self. The most recent set of financial results from the company do not bode well for the already troubled company.

erm... AFAIK, it was the opposite - SGI gave up on their own graphics silicon (except their gfx-pipelining architecture) and asked nVidia to deliver, but they refused... after all, nVidia was founded by former SGI employees!
