2003 HPCwire Innovation Awards - November 2003
 SGI earned six top spots in the 2003 HPCwire Innovation Awards-more than
any other vendor, including IBM and Sun. Leading the honors is the SGI(r)
Altix(r) 3000 family, which was voted Most Innovative Overall HPC Technology
in a survey of subscribers to HPCwire, the journal of record for
high-performance computing.

SGI also earned Readers Choice Awards in four other categories:
Vendor Delivering Most Innovative HPC Technology for 2003
Hardware Vendor Delivering Most Innovative HPC Technology for 2003
Visualization Vendor Delivering Most Innovative HPC Technology for 2003
Visualization Vendor Delivering Greatest Price/Performance Solution for 2003

SGI also claimed a coveted Editors Choice award:

Visualization Vendor Delivering the Greatest Price/Performance Solution for

 Linux Journal 2003 Reader's Choice Awards - Issue 115 (November) The SGI
Altix 3000 server and supercluster received the honor of "Favorite Server"
in the 2003 Linux Journal Reader's Choice Awards.

SGI(r) Altix(r) 3000 wins Product of the Year award in Linux Journal's
Editors' Choice Awards  Linux Journal's Editors' Choice Awards are well
known as the premier forum recognizing outstanding product developments and
achievements in the Linux(r) market. A panel of distinguished Linux experts
was assembled to nominate products for the awards. Linux Journal editors
chose the final winners from among those nominations.
With global shared memory across cluster nodes, SGI Altix 3000 superclusters
scale up to hundreds of processors. Such supercluster capabilities leverage
the built-in SGI(r) NUMAlink(tm) interconnect fabric, delivering data across
nodes up to 200 times faster than conventional clustering interconnects.

The winners of this year's Editors' Choice awards are featured in the August
2003 issue of Linux Journal.

 SGI(r) Altix(r) family wins "Best Linux(r) Hardware" honors at LinuxUser &
Developer Expo The inaugural LinuxUser & Developer Awards were presented at
the Network Industry Awards ceremony in Birmingham on the June 24, 2003, the
first day of the LinuxUser & Developer Expo--The Linux Zone. SGI(r) Altix(r)
3000 servers and superclusters--the most scalable Linux systems on the
planet, running a single Linux OS image with 64 Intel(r) Itanium(r) 2
processors and up to 8TB of memory--received the Best Linux Hardware award.
Judges selected the winners from nominations from readers of LinuxUser &
Developer magazine.

SGI(r) Altix(r) 3000 family wins "Best of Show" honors at LinuxWorld 2003
The SGI Altix 3000 family of Linux(r) OS-based servers and superclusters won
"Best of Show" honors at their world premiere at the LinuxWorld 2003 trade
show, held in New York City in late January.
The first Linux system purpose-built for technical users in sciences,
manufacturing, energy, government, and media, the new Linux OS-based
supercluster combines the compute power of Intel(r) Itanium(r) 2 processors
with the unequalled scalability and high-speed memory access of SGI(r)
NUMAflex(tm) shared-memory architecture. SGI Altix 3000 superclusters
provide stunning increases in performance and capability over traditional
Linux clusters, scaling to hundreds--and eventually thousands--of Intel
Itanium 2 processors in a 64-bit environment that is specifically optimized
to reduce the time and resources required to run technical applications.
