MIPS section

Unread postby Nihilus » Fri Nov 27, 2009 5:09 pm

I'd want a specific MIPS section referring to everything MIPS: From the ABI's to the FPU. Pretty much Like the book "See MIPS run" but mixed with SGI/IRIX-stuff.
SGI Systems: R4K :Indigo:/256MB/XS-24, R5K 150MHz :Indy:/160MB/XL-24, R10K 175MHz :O2:/640MB, R12K 400MHz :Octane2:/Vpro6/1GB & R4K 250 MHz :Indigo2IMP:/128 MB/XZ Extreme/GIO64 FDDI

That would be lovely. There are very few sites out there that actually state the difference between a R10K and a R16K, and I mean every detail, not just "has double the L1 cache".

To be fair, I haven't seen any architecture papers on the R12K-R16K.

The R10k docs by NEC also cover the R12000. Searching for 'VR12000 pdf' on the NEC site should get back some datasheet and user manual links.

I have never seen much on the R14k or R16k, but here is some info on the R18k:

It was of course ultimately cancelled, but it may be of interest to see what might have been.

Hey, wake up! We obviously need a MIPS-section :D

That's what the wiki is for. Use that to document MIPS information.

I don't think the Wiki is the place to chat about trying to do usb support on Linux on PlayStation 2. :)

Then discuss it in one of the existing forums and I'll consider a dedicated section once there are enough topical posts to warrant it. But honestly, there must be better places out there to discuss Linux USB support (MIPS or otherwise) than Nekochan.

Well, I'vent found any place yet with the exception of MIPS-Linux.org but that's just Linux and MIPS32/64. :(

Don't be like that. He wasn't being rude or abrasive or anything. You even clipped out the big smiley face at the end of his post.

What are you wanting to discuss that doesn't fit there? They've got mailing lists and an IRC channel (#mipslinux on freenode). Also, it's linux-mips.org.

This feels like the common "don't ask to ask. just ask" thing I see on IRC all the time.

"Q? A: See MIPS Run." Is the most likely on answer #mipslinux. :-) It has been on the topic for IRC-channel for quite some years. Albeit being a good book for MIPS32(r2) (I've of.c. my personal copy), it doesn't fulfil the need when I want to know EVERYTHING on the MIPS R10K (or any other SGI-MIPS) CPU-arch.

You didn't answer the question.

What topics do you want to discuss that don't fit there?

Someone's not just sitting in #mipslinux eagerly waiting for your question. You've got to be patient. You've also got to show that you're not asking the first stupid question that's popped into your head; that is, you've done some thinking about it.

Since I'm a regular on both #mipslinux and the mailing-list I've got no issue with waiting, however most people find (including myself) non-Linux MIPS topics to be off-topic.
Let say I want to know about the pipeline'ing done by the R10K-CPU or how floats in the R8K works, and the ways to get around the silicon bugs in the R8K in gcc vs MIPSPro works respectively (yes, I'm eager to learn that).

Ralf worked at SGI. If anyone knows, it'd probably be him.

I've never seen any questions like this asked.

Who here worked at SGI that would have a better idea about these things than Ralf?
