Maya 6.5 for IRIX Qualification
This 6.5 qual
chart is being updated regularly with both new,
and existing graphics cards from the previous Maya 6.0 Qual Chart
Please check back frequently here for updates.
ATTENTION Users of the IRIX Operating System
Over the past few years, there has been a significant decrease in the number of Maya customers relying on the IRIX operating system for running Maya interactively. As a result, Maya 6.5 will be the last upgrade release for IRIX. Going forward, Alias will concentrate its development of Maya on the remaining platforms, namely Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Alias will however continue to offer support for IRIX as a license-serving platform.
