I'm not sure it is acurate to say R5200, but the EE chip, the main chip
in the system is definately something from the R5k family, with extra
SIMD type funtionality added.

However, the IOP is still R3k based.  I've heard reports that the GS
chip is R5k based, but there doesn't seem to be much documentation on it
that I'm finding, unlike the IOP and EE.

Keep in mind, unlike the N64, Dreamcast, Gamecube, or XBox, the PS2 uses
all software rendering.
