MIPS discloses first RISC-V chips coming in Q4 2022



After a brief stint with opening up the MIPS ISA under similar terms as RISC V (and OpenPower), it seems the shambling zombie that was MIPS has now finally disintegrated. Not too surprising.

Still seeing a lot of MIPS SoCs in older networking and AV gear, but everything produced the past 15 years or so appears to use ARM instead. Guess MIPS was a fun ISA while it lasted, but it's hard to fight against x86, ARM and Power on multiple fronts when your marketshare drops year over year.
