About the TED
The TED is the heart of the 264 series. It's responsible for video, sound, DRAM refresh and cursor.
It was designed by Dave DiOrio, Bruce Aherns and Eric Yang (source: Bil Herd, former C= employee).

The difference between the numbers (7360/8360) is that they were manufactured with different technologies.
7360 is manufactured with HMOS-1 (251535-01)
8360 is manufactured with HMOS-2 (251535-02)

The newer systems (more common) was the latter. Presumably there have been 3 revisions of the TED in total, including the prototype R0. A U.S. Patent has been filed by Commodore under nr. 4,569,019 that describes the TED concept in broad terms.
