Has anyone experienced increased I/O performance with SQL Server 2012 vs. 2008 when using Sql Geometry?  We have found that by modifying the default spatail index from: Medium for all four levels with 16 cells per object, to Medium for levels 1-3, Low for Level 4 with 64 cells per object significantly increased draw speeds since 10.1 for large complex layers such as Parcels and have been using this index ever since. 

Does anyone know if the SQL Server 2012 daatabase engine handles Sql Geometry more efficiently?  Our sde currently resindes on a Windows Server 2008R2 with 16 cores (no hyperthreading!) and 64-gb of RAM with a RAID 10 configuration.
