I saw Broadcom's CE division at a show recently, they are still shipping new MIPS products but I saw no use of new core designs. A shame really because I have a soft spot for MIPS.

The latest Cavium part is ARM-based yes as mentioned in the ARM server story, but Imagination is also including Cavium as a continuing MIPS customer without giving away its customer's product roadmap and the 6400 is very much aimed at Cavium as a customer - this is why it has been an interesting set of stories over the last week

"All this aims at the larger networking and storage applications for customers such as Broadcom and Cavium"

 

But haven't both Broadcom and Cavium announced that their next generation processors will be ARM based?

 

Nick, did Imagination indicate that this new core will be licensed by Cavium and Broadcom? That would be worthwile to clarify and fact-check. Otherwise this is a just a "press-release" article for imagination.

Very nice step to promote MIPS 64

It is very nice to know that support for MIPS 64 is made available on QEMU. This will really promote the use of MIPS 64 in new as well as existing systems. Does QEMU require any specific hardware to simulate MIPS 64 on a normal PC
