Imagination dispatches Warrior CPU core to battle ARM and Intel

James Niccolai | Oct. 16, 2013
The U.K. chip firm released its first new MIPS CPU design, a 32-bit device with as many as six cores.

The type of smartphones MIPS chips are used in today don't really need the 40-bit address space, he said, and the hardware virtualization will be more useful when a 64-bit chip arrives.

"They can start to use it with network gear now, but frankly, with Intel and AMD already at 64 bits for their small-core architectures, and ARM moving to 64 bits shortly, I see that as more of a forward-looking story for them."
