Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Considering that it is a MIPS design, I don't know how they can claim it is their own chip. Oh wait, thats right. We're talking about the knock off capital of the world here.
So their new chip is basicly a knock off of a chip design that died off in everything but the embedded market years ago. Actually, judging by the power envelope, it doesn't sound like they did much to the core other than add those instructions and finagle it for multi core. We can't even tell if this is just multiple cores on chip or cores on die.
