Mark Cerny and Digital Foundry explained it, it isn`t a temporary boost. It is the regular use of the GPU and CPU, either of them can be kept to the maximum frequency all the time, sure he don`t say both would be at the same time, and that is where the change in frequency comes for one going down (few %) for the other to go the maximum.

Not only both of you are satisfied but also expect shift on how games are made when leveraging the SSD advantages.

Sony specifically mentioned AMD's Smart Shift technology.
I have a notebook that leverages similar technology.

Basically if the demand for the CPU or GPU is lesser... Then the other can clock up to it's maximum as it has the TDP available.

It cannot maintain both the CPU and GPU at maximum clocks indefinitely, otherwise it's not a "boost mode" at all and Sony shouldn't have even bothered to mention it.

The Smarshift in PS5 is specifically to give unused power from CPU to GPU, doesn't seem like it will be the same you have on notebook.
