5MP in 1/1.8" format => too much noise?

Glancing through Phil's reviews I don't see any examples of 5MP cameras using a 1/1.8 inch sensor size. (The 5MP Nikons use a larger 2/3" size.)

Given that the s45 has worse noise than a s30, won't an s50 likely have even more noise?

Have there been recent improvements in sensors that would counteract this problem?

I'd love more resolution (I want to be able to make 16x20 prints on my s9000 with my pics but I'm not sure how much more noise would be acceptable.

Thoughts?

Greg
