People’s Processor: Embrace China’s Homegrown Computer Chips

Credit is due to Tom Halfhill on this one, who despite being mentioned only once in the piece, has written thousands of words about the Loongson processor and even traveled to China to really break this story open for Microprocessor Report. His insight was invaluable and there is probably no one else in the West who has thought as much about what a homegrown family of MIPS-compatible CPUs could lead to – especially when it’s backed by the full might of the Chinese government.
