The screen capture of the MMIXX first ever successful run (mmixx/pattern.mms). It is instructive to see how much overhead there is in the vanilla putPixel(). Clearly, a graphics accelerator is badly needed for high-end MMIX powered virtual computers.

Lorentz attractor with cannonical values of parameters (sigma=10, rho=28, beta=8/3). The system was solved with the fourth-order Runge-Kutta, XY view of the trajectory is shown. Produced by running mmixx/lorentz.mmo. Colors chosen for a pleasing visual effect.

Same as above, but this time as seen from the XZ plane. (Or was it YZ?) That's the question!
Problem: change mmixx/lorentz.mms to produce this image.
