SubjectRe: Games
: It seems SGI found a performance problem with X.  (Someone here
: said the X protocol becomes a severe bottleneck on high-end
: graphics hardware, but I'd heard about the CAD a long time ago.)

SGI has known about the bottleneck for years. Likely the CAD system
uses some flavor of SGL or OpenGL. SGI has special hooks in their X
server to give greater performance than X could deliver.
