Thanks for the feedback guys and for adding clarity to my DIGIC 5+ Image Processor question. Now, I can relate to the term "overclocking" because I "Oc'd" quite a few of my PC processors, but a threefold increase in speed over the "DIGIC 5" Processor is one hell of an overclock and would, in my view, qualify for a "DIGIC 6" nomenclature.

Not necessarily. "+" could identify a smaller manufacturing process, for a higher clock speed at lower power. Like a GPU, additional parallel functional units could have been added for H.264 or JPEG encoding.
