Imagination wants to bring back MIPS

Imagination CEO Hossein Yassaie revealed that the reason why his firm bought part of MIPS is because they plan on bringing MIPS back to the market. Yasaie explained Imagination intents to cover all the markets where a CPU is relevant with MIPS, and that a new CPU design for low-power servers will be revealed next year. The company also hopes to get the chips into tablets, smartphones and wearable computers. Full details at InfoWorld.
It's a new and bold effort by Imagination, which is best known for the PowerVR graphics chips used in many top-tier mobile devices, including Google Glass. It hopes to expand the MIPS business in areas where the architecture is already strong, such as networking and home media systems, and also to plow new ground.

That will mean increased competition with Imagination's UK rival ARM Holdings. ARM is the dominant designer of CPUs for smartphones and tablets, and it's also targeting the server market, so the moves by Imagination could set up a grand battle between the two companies over the next few years. ARM, meanwhile, is also going for a bigger slice of Imagination's graphics business.
