The latest MIPS architecture designs include an SMT system known as
"MIPS MT". MIPS MT provides for both heavyweight virtual processing
elements and lighter-weight hardware microthreads. RMI, a
Cupertino-based startup, is the first MIPS vendor to provide a processor
SOC based on 8 cores, each of which runs 4 threads. The threads can be
run in fine-grain mode where a different thread can be executed each
cycle. The threads can also be assigned priorities.

I hope this stuff is for the machine room. :-)

And recession helps...
