Like most acronyms, it has several meanings.
The oldest computer-related one I know of is "Millions of Instructions
Per Second". That was followed not long afterwards by
"Meaningless Indicator of Performance.
MIPS is also the name of one of the larger companies in the
embedded CPU market. They also used to make general purpose CPUs,
but they went mostly embedded especially after SGI bought them
and sold them again a few years later.
