I went looking for MIPS64 systems recently and noticed a surprising number of networking devices with large amounts (8GB or more) of RAM, barely any flash/rom, and a Linux/Busybox based OS to process network requests. MIPS64 seems to be mainly used in higher-end networking systems (commercial routers/switches)--at least outside China, where it's used for HPC, some desktops, and just about everything else.
