Talking smack to Intel about CPUs is like smack talking to a 28 year old Michael Jordan.

Wasn't there a thread about almost the same thing nearly a year ago? There was similar post in it too IIRC.

I'm keeping an eye on MIPS. They have a lot going for them.

Easy to cross-compile with ARM.
Well known and simple (taught in almost every school).
Well designed to be scalable and efficient (designed by a group of Standford researchers to be the best rather than fit a specific niche).
The first 64-bit architecture (ARM64 takes a lot of inspiration from MIPS64).

MIPS microcontroller architectures are (for the most part for a given node) faster and smaller than ARM's.
MIPS new processor (ProAPTIV) has better coremark scores than A15 while using 1/2 the die area.
Loongson. China has invested heavily in MIPS processors (It's worth noting that they could have chosen any ISA -- they weren't paying anyway -- but they chose MIPS). China's petaflop supercomputer uses MIPS chips and only consumes 1/3 the power of other petaflop computers (despite using 65nm fabs).

In addition to China, American licensees use MIPS for most large network equipment. These chips are 8-core 32-thread monsters with 4 - DDR3 memory controllers (they handle millions of internet transactions per second). They see continued use because of their power efficiency.
Broadcom recently licensed MIPS entire patent portfolio (they will be looking to recoup their expenditures).

The original MIPS ISA is no longer patent encumbered, but it still contains most of the useful parts of MIPS and is a completely supported subset of the newer MIPS additions (but without ANY of the crud that architectures like x86 have. The MIPS team at Standford really looked ahead when making it).

If there were ever an architecture that could be all things to all people (and do it right), it is MIPS.

In other words, RISC architectures are the damn bomb.
