Mips ... i have been looking for this, for a try:

but i think that a minimum of 200 MHz is needed.

does mips have FP?

I am not an electronic expert ... and i have big abillity to choose ...
geode is x86 compatible ... it is a good chance ... although ... can he
fit on a custom home made board?

best regards.
