Because your process has R3000 PRiD (processor revision ID). When
R3000 processor matured as volume-shipment quality, the distinction
between R2000 and R3000 was just a marketing attribute. An ex
MIPS-Japan guy told me long time ago (early '90) that MIPS sold slow
clocked R3000 as R2000, if my memory serves correctly.
