Is there any truth in this article? 

I've contacted our SW vendor and they said the following: 


The functionality is still in a Beta testing mode.


The 20 to 30 times faster mainly refers to some frame rates when manipulating large assemblies.


They are trying to utilise aspects of the graphics cards that are geared towards gaming applications. CAD cards are more concerned with accuracy whereas gaming cards are geared towards higher frame rates.

So the main benefits will be that assemblies will be smoother when zooming and rotating and hopefully it will aid the loading times also.
