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.
