In the mid to late s, Number Nine began to lose market share to competitors in both the price and performance arenas. Mature version of Imagine II without Cirrus chip at the back. Unfortunately, games revealed the engine as less mature than one would expect. SGI’s SW video adapters were proprietary on-board to their O2, , and graphics workstations.

The video engine got separated from drawing engine and grown even bigger- into bits stage and 8 pixels per clock bilinear interpolations.
