I just tried it out, and while it certainly is an improvement, I noticed that the performance appears to depend on the direction the point moves. E.g. I generated a long line using

yes abbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb | head -100000 | tr -d '\n' > long-line

and I could C-v to the end without any issues. But M-v was significantly slower. The same applies to C-f vs. C-b.

Yes, the same is true without long lines, moving backward is slower than moving forward (but you probably meant C-p vs C-n, not C-f vs C-b). Please also read the relevant NEWS entry. And try to edit that file with Emacs from master to see the difference.
