I came in here to post exactly this.

New technology is amazing!

Yes it does. Better ISO performance means faster shutter speeds which allow for larger apertures.

I don't think you quite understand the principle.

Faster shutter speeds allow for larger apertures. This has nothing to do with the ISO performance.

Better high ISO performance means that you can use faster shutter speeds or smaller apertures, or both.

And Photoshop now has a plug in to increase DOF even at small apertures.

That's nowhere near the same as the real thing.
