"I want to be careful not to conflate MIPS with UltraSparc, since the latter is still in production. (You can get high-end servers powered by the UltraSparc T2 and T2+, aka Niagara 2. A wide mix of other SPARC chips and servers are also available, including the UltraSPARC T1, and SPARC64 VI and VII.) For its part, MIPS was spun off from Silicon Graphics as a separate company in 1998 and is now an IP silicon house, meaning it licenses its chip cores as intellectual property.
