    though i dont know for def and im waiting till 8xxx anyway id put money on a lot more shaders going in that spare space and hence quite possibly a nice performance jump but as i only swap at x2 performance il still be sticking:D

    AMD does not need even more shaders.
    Not without significantly increasing the ROP count.
    The shaders on the HD 5800 series is already under utilized and that is why AMD did what they did with the 6900 series.
