I don't know what a revolution requires, but the use of those chips in
the SGI RE and RE2 boardsets certainly has left a large impact on many
of us.

I loved the Onyx RE2 I spent many hours on. The newer less than
10y.o. SGI stuff I currently use is also nice (and probably faster for
many things), but it just isn't the same.
