  the CPU itself probably is, but a minimum Crimson/VGX is a beast
  consisting of 5 9U VME style boards. The graphics hardware is
  probably the most consuming part. It includes one Motorola 68K CPU,
  tons of custom ASICS and the appropriate glue logic elements.

  And there is a VGX boardset: http://sgistuff.g-lenerz.de/pictures/powerseries.html#boards
