Android Graphics Performance

Has anybody watched this session about what is coming in the graphics pipeline in the next Android update?

The session is presented in this year's Google I/O by Romain Guy and Chet Haase.

Could anybody point to how these new technologies will help to give a boost in the graphics and animation performance on Android ? Is it going to make scrolling much smoother while loading images for example ?

This type gets me excited about Android!!

I am really looking for your input guys.

Here is the link for the session
