The MIPS P5600 processor IP core is the first member of the Warrior generation of MIPS CPU cores from Imagination Technologies. It delivers industry leading 32-bit performance with class-leading low power characteristics, and in a silicon footprint up to 30% smaller than comparable alternatives in the industry. The P5600 CPU core was designed for the performance and features required for tomorrow's mainstream connected consumer electronics including smartphones, tablets, connected TVs and set-top boxes. However, the rich and broad feature set extends applicability into a variety of networking applications, from residential gateways to network appliances and microservers.

| Nobody really made a big mark in their calendar but 20 years ago, on 1 October [[1991]] the MIPS [[R4000]] was announced which along with its later refinement, the [[R4600]], was among the two processors supported initially by Linux/MIPS. At first only 32-bit kernel and userland were supported but a 64-bit kernel with full 32-bit binaries compatibility was added in [[1999]] initially for the [[IP27|Origin 2000]] which with 128 processors for a while was the biggest multi-processor system Linux ever had ran on and a little later a 64-bit userland with focus on high end embedded systems was added. 64-bit? An old story.
