Default A SGI Branded BOXX?

Take a look at this system here:

Is it me or are the similarities very obvious? The system looks like purple BOXX (probably a 3DBOXX model) with a SGI badge, lol.

I just downloaded the SGI datasheet and it seems that SGI now has 2, 4, and 8 socket systems, just like BOXX. Is SGI rebranding BOXX hardware or does BOXX just buy OEM stuff and slap their own badge on it? The mystery deepens!
