I've recently got into bitcoin mining using my PS3.

On Anandtech they have previewed the future of AMD graphics cards. They are moving away from a VLIW design and moving towards SIMD.

It looks like that the new GPU design will be moving towards something more nvidia like and therefore bad at bitcoin mining.

Apart from moving to ASIC's and FPGA's it looks like GPU bitcoing mining is going to slowdown dramatically.

As the move to the newer series, the 5xxx and 6xxx cards will get cheaper. The only thing that would really hit bitcoin mining would be if these cards ran out of supply, which wont happen for a while.

Supply of the high end graphics cards almost always runs out first.

I think the southern islands will be the last iteration of the VLIW design so we have another year or two before supply of effective graphics cards are non-existant.
