PS2

(1) An early IBM personal computer. See IBM PS/2.

(2) (PlayStation 2) A popular video game console from Sony. DVD based and introduced in the U.S. in 2000 after great success in Japan, the first PS2 models came with a 128-bit, 300 MHz Emotion CPU. Also included was a MIPS R3000 chip for I/O handling and backward compatibility with the earlier PlayStation. During its reign, more than 100 million PS2s were shipped worldwide.

Significant advances in processor technology were made in the following years, and Sony's PlayStation 3 (PS3) dramatically increased performance. See PS3, PS4, PlayStation and video game console.
