Well, you can never believe what is on the case anyway.

However, I think the Impact badge was used on any Impact graphics.

There is no Irix 8.

Hopefully he means Irix 6.5 media.  In the 6.5 era (which is nearly a
decade now I believe), there are two main parts.  There are the
foundation disks (which have 6.5.0 on them), and then there are the over
lays that give you versions like 6.5.8 or 6.5.22.  6.5.22 is the last
version to run on an Indigo 2 (and 6.5.30 is the last version period).
The non-bootable overlay images are available for free from SGI's
website once you sign up for a free supportfolio account.  That they are
non-bootable images means that you still need another set of overlays,
since you typically boot from the first disc of the overlay set.
