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.

Sooo... do you think... they'll produce MIPS or MIPS-EL?

Gads, I miss the Crimson workstation I had... 1994 and 64-bit... IRIX was the BOMB!

Man, it SMOKED anything HP could come up with or buy at the time. Who remembers that purchase and was pissed off by it?
