Well, MIPS might be all good and resonable but unless you can find a sugerdaddy who is willing to pour in money into such a project this discussion is pointless. The Team has told us "show us the hardware first, then we can talk", which is reasonable since a lot of people during the years have come up with ideas they hope the Team will jump on. None of them went anyware. So it's the wrong end to start with.
First find an investor with a plan. Then you might have a case.
[Edit] And as to an alternative to X68/ARM in the server market we have Power8 and beyond, which at least seem to be competative and endorced by a conglomerate lead by the mighty IBM. It's way too expensive for the consumer market but not the server market. So MIPS doesn't rule supreme there either.[ Edited by Yasu 17.03.2016 - 10:29 ]
