In the News The desktop and laptop world is dominated by x86, the mobile/embedded world by ARM. Conventional wisdom, right? Not really. There's also MIPS - hundreds of millions of embedded devices run on MIPS, and for years now, the architecture has been trying to break into the mobile world dominated so much by ARM. They just a got a boost: MIPS has been acquired by Imagination Tech, most known for its PowerVR graphics chips used in a lot of smartphones and tablets.

Net Yaroze devs also probably had lots of fun... and some of their productions, included on the CDs of Official PS1 magazine, certainly rivalled many commercial games in fun department.

Sometimes even quite extensive games, all in 2 MiB of main RAM... (Net Yaroze productions couldn't load additional data after launch, entirety of those games had to fit in RAM)
