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
Something else.. They have actually updated the software/operating system portion between ISTA/P 45.1 and 46.3 - this is aside from the Firmware update via USB which certainly resolves a TON of issues.
