I think you are lost in translation. The thing that iFixit mistakenly called a "NIC" is Aeolia Southbridge.If you read the datasheets its proberly a NIC.
Since Zen took most high-speed stuff off the SB, all that's left in it is Supper I/O and secure processor.
Just look up 33C3 presentation from fail0verflow. There's lots of info on this topic in it. Especially the fact that they ditched PSP in favor of their own implementation, which was handled exactly by that chip.They dont need to have a secundairy CPU somewhere outside of the board as AMD can provide the IP (secure processor anyone?) that makes the CPU have it's own co-cpu.
Even though PS4 was eventually hacked, it took awhile. That's probably why Sony decided to improve on their previous work and simply stick with what's already working.
