The NEC R5000 Processor
The R5000, designed by Quantum Effect Devices (QED), replaced the R4600 in 1996. The R5000 FPU had more flexible single precision floating-point scheduling than the R4x00, and as a result, R5000-based SGI Indys had much better graphics performance than similarly clocked R4400 Indys with the same graphics hardware. SGI gave the old graphics board a new name (XL8 -> XGE8) when it was combined with R5000 in order to emphasize the improvement.
