If it's relevant - SGI's Indy is coming with doughter cards so you can
change between R4000PC/R4000SC or any other card which might come out
in the future.
Could the technician from SGI/MTI (?) teach us about this option?
On a second though, adding a doughter card must be going to rise the
cost and time to design significally, isn't it?
All in all - the last message from Wuldorf sounds very encouraging. I just
hope we won't go again into the R4200 vs. ???? debate again and catch
this opporunity while it is valid.
