5 Way Vliw Vs 4 Way Vliw

I know AMD recently their Radeon 6900 series of card the are based on the new VLIW4 architecture and not the VLIW5 architecture. Is there a very big performance gain between the two architectures? I read that many applications didn't take advantage of the fifth shader so AMD dropped it. Is this true?
