What CPU type? R10k? R12k? Or even R14k?

The Octane has PCI peripherals on the CPU board. The PCI card cage just
adds an additional XIO-PCI bridge with the required mechanics to mount
PCI cards.

If someone is seriosly working on a MIPS64 port and wants an Origin 200
for testig: I own an O200 and can make it available for remote testing.
The O200 is particularly suited for this. It has a service processor
that can power up/down, reset, ... the machine via RS232.
