Cool, I didn't know that architecture existed.
It's widely used in microarchitecture classes, the (32bit) instructions are easy to decode and implement, and it is typically used to demonstrate the classic 5-stage pipeline. Actually, I'm working on an out-of-order core right now.

MIPS is in a lot of stuff. Your internet router is probably MIPS-based. Very popular in networking applications. The Nintendo 64, Playstation 1 and 2, and PSP are also MIPS-based.

Love my early Chromebook, has a 320 gig hard drive, and I use the VGA port for my cheap HD1920x1080 garage find monitor.

Would love to have a fast MIPS Chromebox, with 2 USB3.0, I HDMI, 1 Ethernet ports, WiFi and 1 VGA connector. Would make a great standalone Netflix & HBO entertainment system, needs to play Flack/ogg music & Avi/Fly/MP4 from external HD
