Gollum CGI - same or enhanced and if so, how much? Can't Post

I wonder how much "improvement" in Gollum's CGI is possible over the original? Will they keep them similar for continuity? From the trailers, I have not picked anything up that says..."new and improved"....but in reality, the original was so good that I am not sure how much more can be done other than showing every pore on his skin. Maybe subtle muscle movements around eyes, mouth etc.

The motion capture technology looked similar, but I have no idea what has changed over 10 years in the rendering etc. I assume greater but is it something that will be seen on screen? The 48 fps and 3-d will have a big impact in comparison....not sure about the underlying CGI.
