That's the USB update that can be downloaded from BMW, or something else? My car is Oct 2011 production.

It seems rather likely that the new iDrive will use the new Nvidia hardware:

Intel processor 1.3Ghz vs Renesas 600Mhz
1Gb RAM vs 512Mb
8Gb flash vs 512Mb
Nvidia graphics vs Fujitsu
200Gb harddisk vs 80Gb
