<p>A class of machines known both as superworkstations and graphics supercomputers has become available. These workstations provide computing performance previously available only on supercomputers and graphics performance at levels never before available. The author presents a model that differentiates graphics architectures on the basis of graphics computation partitioning and places superworkstation architectures within the framework. He then presents the reasoning that resulted in the architecture of the Silicon Graphics 4D/240GTX superworkstation. The architecture and performance of the 4D/240GTX are discussed.</p>
