Windows 8 Cumulative Update: Faster?

Is it just me or is anyone else noticing speed improvements after today's update? things are noticeably zippier. Also opened remote desktop connection which I've been using on win8 for a couple weeks and the VMware i'm running on the remote pc is noticeably smoother. Also a weird gmail bug where typing was unresponsive has apparently been smashed as well. Have other folks seen any noticeable improvements? If this is a sign of things to come I'm pretty psyched.
