Actually the Origin 2000 series had ZERO CRAY technology in them, the
CRAY-Links are actually SGI technology from their numa-link interconnect
and was branded CRAY-something just to cash in on the name.
I think the people from the CS-6400 were sold to SUN, and some of the
ideas went into the E10K series. So SUN products may have more CRAY in
them than SGI's ever did.
