My current environment has a "Brocade 200e", and I have enough ports for all my environment.
Is there any chance that a newer / stornger brocade will imporove performance? (assume that the port speeds are the same)
Also - Is there an impact of internal contents of the Brocade on its performance (such as cpu, memory...) ?

The 200e is a good little switch at 4GB per port I'm sure it will be able to handle your various workloads that you can throw at it.
Most people have more issues with the Storage arrays RAID groups than actually bandwidth issues in the fabric.
