Sorry for stepping in here, guys. This isn't strictly SGI related, but...

[root@localhost /root]# cat /proc/cpuinfo
cpu                     : MIPS
cpu model               : R4400SC V4.0
system type             : Digital DECstation 5000/2x0
BogoMIPS                : 59.90
byteorder               : little endian
unaligned accesses      : 0
wait instruction        : no
microsecond timers      : yes
extra interrupt vector  : no
hardware watchpoint     : yes
VCED exceptions         : 5244
VCEI exceptions         : 17100    

OTOH there may be significant differences between V4.0 and V6.0, but maybe
this helps.
