In this post I’ll go through some of the enhancements and improvements done by the CLR team as part of the performance improvements in .Net 4.5. In most cases developers will not have to do anything different to take advantage of the new stuff, it will just works whenever the new framework libraries are used. Topics covered: - Improved Large Object heap Allocator - Background mode for Server GC - Auto NGEN

I think everyone is excited about the memory management improvements, true background GC!

That's is true, The performance gain from the workstation improvements in CLR 4.0 encourage the CLR team to take advantage of that on Server mode as well.
