Hmmm... all I know is:

# file /usr/tftpboot/Xncdhmx
/usr/tftpboot/Xncdhmx:        ELF 32-bit MSB executable, MIPS R3000_BE, version 1

If this 19" monitor wasn't so blasted heavy (and covered in so many
trinkets and spare parts) I'd lift it off and see for sure!  ;-)

But you're right, there are other places on the net too where it is
claimed the R4600 is the processor....
