Rumor is they had a hard time keeping the Physical edition under $500, so it does sound likely the BOM for the Digital edition is right around $450.
They're just willing to eat a $50+ loss on the Digital Only console because it cuts out retailers and distribution (about $20 per new game).

All they're saying is clock speeds won't be restricted, so yes God of War will run with spectacularly high framerates, but you can probably count on one hand the number of PS4 games with an unlocked framerate.
A lot of people are going to be clamouring for PS5 patches.
I'd love to play The Last Guardian at 4K60, we have no idea if that will ever happen.
On the other hand Microsoft is adapting their emulation program to run Xbox One games beyond original spec, like the 2001 Xbox version of KOTOR running 4K60 on One X, we "should" be getting nearly the entire Xbox library running 4K60 (realistically 1800p in all the 900p Xbox One games, the Back Compat software just increases resolution in clean multiples).
