What follows is an email I wrote for our sales department, which had to regularly field questions surrounding these issues when our VoIP product came up. The scary thing is that the misconception is most prevalent in the minds of people who should know better (engineers and sysadmins).

One of the projects I did for Microchip was a feasibility study of porting the ARM Cortex instruction set to comparable routines for MIPS. The ultimate goal for the chipKIT team is/was to port the Teensy3 audio library to their line of PIC32 dev boards. What follows is my report, along with some elaborations for readers who want the knowledge, but aren't yet level 60 mages.
