True, I haven't heard, but I haven't been looking.

With multi-hundred antenna to be steered, and an AMD64 CPU on board, I can't
imagine that that CPU isn't doing some significant amount of DSP.
If they had offboarded all the analog parts to another DSP or discrete logic,
then probably they wouldn't need a 64-bit CPU onboard: they could have used
something slower/cheaper.  Well, maybe there is future proofing involved.

I'm very disappointed that "Something simpler than IPv6" turned out to be "CGN".
