"Challenge" covered a lot of system types.  Some were proper desksides,
but not proper Challenges:  From Wikipedia: 

"Other systems from Silicon Graphics that used the "Challenge" brand
were the Challenge M and the Challenge S. These systems were repackaged
Silicon Graphics Indigo2 and Indy workstations that were not configured
with the graphics hardware that made them useful as workstations. These
systems were Challenges in name only and have no architectural
similarity with the multiprocessing Challenges, although they had cases
with the same blue hue as proper Challenges."
