Folding on 5870?

People over on the Folding Forum were saying how ATI folding doesn't use all the shader units. I expect the PPD to go up. However, how long would ATI folders have to wait for their PPD to go up?
Mike Houston and ATI have done all they can with GPU2 in it's current form. There may be some tweaks and slight core improvements, but the gains will be nominal. The core will have to be re-written to harness all of ATI's shaders and OpenCL will most likely be utilized for that, but you will have to wait for GPU2 v2.0 or GPU3.
