lshw does not list any details of the CPU architecture for MIPS. This is all it give for MIPS:

physical id:
bus info:
size: 796MHz
capacity: 796MHz
capabilities: cpufreq

In contrast, it gives much more detailed information for x86:

product: Geode(TM) Integrated Processor by AMD PCS
vendor: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD]
physical id:
bus info:
version: 5.10.2
size: 500MHz
width: 32 bits
capabilities: fpu fpu_exception wp de pse tsc msr cx8 sep pge cmov clflush mmx mmxext 3dnowext 3dnow

lshw should at least show the architecture if not also the make and model of CPU.
