Does anybody still remember the UltraP modules designed by SGI?
Basically a modules that replaces the Pentium in it's sockets and provides
two socket, one for the Pentium, one for the MIPS CPU.
I wonder if these ever have been released to the market or what happend
Similar I found that Toshiba build a chipset that seems to be very closely
related to the original MIPS Magnum 4000 chipset. I wonder if any machines
based on that have been sold?
