|Type||3D Graphics workstation|
|Predecessor||SGI IRIS 4D POWER series|
The IRIS Crimson (code-named Diehard2) is a Silicon Graphics (SGI) computer released in 1992. It is the world's first 64-bit workstation.
Crimson is a member of Silicon Graphics's SGI IRIS 4D series of deskside systems; it is also known as the 4D/510 workstation. It is similar to other SGI IRIS 4D deskside workstations, and can use a wide range of graphics options (up to RealityEngine). It is also available as a file server with no graphics.
This machine makes a brief appearance in the movie Jurassic Park (1993) where Lex uses the machine to navigate the IRIX filesystem in 3D using the application fsn to restore power to the compound. The next year, Silicon Graphics released a rebadged, limited edition Crimson R4400/VGXT called the Jurassic Classic, with a special logo and SGI co-founder James H. Clark's signature on the drive door.
Crimson memory is unique to this model.
