Are you sure you're not thinking of the i960?  The i960 was a RISC chip 
that had a long, healthy life in embedded applications.  RAID 
controllers, network control planes, etc.

The only things I ever heard of using the i860 were Intel's own 
supercomputer product, and the most expensive NeXT graphics option.
