    No. Perhaps it's slowing down slightly, but it's not dying. It's just now a mature market while the hot new thing everyone is talking about (mobile) is growing.

      loongson is were ARM try to be in 2014.

      why not just drop ARM and go loongson instead?
      Interesting point.

      I wonder ARM compares against MIPS.

        That 256-bit wide SIMD unit is for their server chip, a thing that consumes 40W. No wonder they have no chance against ARM

          you don't get the point you get 128 GFLOPS double-precision or 256 GFLOPS single-precision for the 40W!

          and this is very good!

            Nobody is going to take that mailing post seriously.
            maybe the tinfoil hats would

              You didn't get it: we were discussing how good ARM is for mobile computing and you come talking about a server chip

                this is not a server chip! you can buy notebooks "Lemote 8133 notebook" with that chip-

                the only difference is 28nm for ARM right now and 65nm for lonngson .-.

                  As far as I could find, that laptop uses Loongson 3A which doesn't have the vector unit (3C has it).

                    Couches? As in multiple? As a poor student? I do have one old couch.

                    But how's that related? Tablets are really un-ergonomic, my wrists don't like it when poking one for more than half an hour. I don't really appreciate touch UIs either, due to their nature they are forced to insert lag (is this a single or double tap? Maybe a gesture?); my fingers aren't invisible; smudges, etc etc.

                    (I do have a couple Android tablets, so speaking from experience)

                      Tablet + stand + external keyboard + duct tape = laptop.
