Silicon Graphics, Inc. (tom qab thaij SGI, keeb kwm hu ua Silicon Graphics Computer Systems los yog SGCS) yog ib qho chaw lag luam American high-performance, tsim computer hardware thiab software. Founded nyob rau hauv Mountain View, California nyob rau lub Kaum Ib Hlis 1981 los ntawm Jim Clark, nws pib ua lag luam yog 3D graphics lub computer workstations, tab sis nws cov khoom, cov tswv yim thiab cov lag luam kev lag luam tsim tau ntev zog.


Cov txheej txheem thaum ntxov tau ua raws Geometry Cav uas Clark thiab Marc Hannah tau tsim los ntawm Stanford University, thiab tau muab los ntawm Clark lub dav dua hauv computer graphics. Lub Geometry Cav yog thawj qhov kev sib koom ua ke (VLSI) ntawm kev siv tus qauv geometry, qhov cuab yeej tshwj xeeb uas ua kom cov duab "hauv-voj voog" geometric xam los ntawm cov duab peb sab. Rau ntau ntawm nws cov keeb kwm, lub tuam txhab tau teem rau 3D kev ntsuam xyuas thiab yog ib tug neeg tseem ceeb ntawm ob qho tib si kho vajtse thiab software nyob rau hauv kev ua lag luam.


Silicon Graphics reincorporated li Delaware corporation nyob rau lub ib hlis ntuj 1990. Los ntawm qhov mus txog rau xyoo 1990s, cov kev ua tau zoo sai ntawm Wintel cov khoom muag pib erode SGI qhov muaj zog hauv lub khw 3D. Lub porting ntawm Maya mus rau lwm lub platforms yog ib qho loj tshwm sim nyob rau hauv txoj kev no. SGI tau ua ntau yam los daws qhov teebmeem no, nrog rau kev txavtximsab los ntawm lawv cov uab lagntsuam MIPS rau Intel Itanium, thiab qhia txog lawv tus kheej xws li Linux IA-32 uas yog Intel raws li cov chaw ua haujlwm thiab cov chaw haujlwm uas ua tsis tau hauv lub khw. Nyob rau hauv nruab nrab-2000s lub tuam txhab repositioned nws tus kheej li ib tug supercomputer vendor, ib tug txav uas tseem tsis tau tejyam.


Thaum lub Plaub Hlis 1, 2009, SGI raug xa mus rau Tshooj 11 kev tivthaiv kev tivthaiv thiab tshaj tawm tias nws yuav muag txhua yam ntawm nws cov cuab tam rau Rackable Systems, qhov kev txiav txim tiav rau lub Tsib Hlis 11, 2009, nrog Rackable piv txwv tias lub npe "Silicon Graphics International". Qhov seem ntawm Silicon Graphics, Inc. los ua Graphics Khoom Holdings, Inc.
