Lol you actually has the same mind with me.  It's more of strategy from Sony forcing Microsoft to reveal their card . By revealing sooner , make some hype  but keeping the small detail secret, Sony has left Microsoft on phinced position , Microsoft can only choose between showing their secret to outshine Sony or hiding it but make Sony get all the light and spot. 

If Microsoft want to outshine PS5 they cannot do the same thing and mentioned the same jargon to journalist and fan on E3 , Sony already did with 8k, Raytracing , Audio ray tracing, SSD, and fast loading time. They will have to pull performance number card which is Teraflop number like they did in 2016.

But if they want to hide their Xbox Next power and secret, they will risking losing some hype and some fan support. So it's safe to say SONY indeed made a smart move, what scary from Sony is not their Tech and reset division but their marketing division. 

I kind of doubt this.  It really does not matter when MS is ready to do their reveal because neither company is going to change course on what they are bringing to market.  Its not like Sony can make any last minute changes and neither can MS at this stage.  MS is going on their own strategy and they either made the right decisions or not.  Nothing Sony does will change anything they have planned at this point and this reveal by Sony probably isn't forcing MS to do anything they have not already planned to do.

That's not really true, though.  When we are about a year or so away from mass production, there are things that can be changed.  Just last gen, MS upped their clock speed to gain a little more power out of the XBO, trying to one up the PS4 slightly in CPU power, since they definitely lost the GPU game.  And when they released the S, they upped the GPU clock to try and shrink the GPU gap a little.

Sure, I doubt anything major, like going with an entire different chipset.  Though, I guess Sony was forced to do that with the PS3 because their two Cell chip solution wasn't working, so they had to delay it a year.  Nothing is impossible.  I do think something that drastic is unlikely without being forced to like Sony was, though, but we may see them adjust clock speeds and/or a slight adjustment to how many CUs are active.
