Yeah, but this time, the ISA is complete, the *actual hardware* though doesn't exist and it is not very likely it will change a lot (besides bugs and optimisations, i would guess).

so the design exists, the software is ready for it (as ready as it can be, considering that only the specification exists) but a hardware instance doesn't yet exist.

Sorry i can't describe it any more accurate, english is not my mother tongue.

the MOST IMPORTANT thing that you are missing is that games on the pc are largely singlethreaded, that is why the fourcore i5 is slightly better choice for a gaming rig than the 8350

however, this move by sony will force developers to actually USE the eight cores of the amd64 cpu in order to get performance out of the 2GHz eight-core cpu

you can imagine what this means for pc gaming.
