You can find the presentation here:  nVidia Advanced Rendering and Ray tracing

You can also find a short blurb about coming features here: ARC Forum SIGGRAPH recap

Mentioned are features such as:

  • Ambient Occlusion on the GPU with mental ray
  • Layered shaders (layered components) that include the SSS shader without lightmapping. They have their own framebuffer mechanism with passes for added flexibility in OEM packages.
  • Object lights with a new shader independent of OEM integrations
  • Light Importance Sampling (IS) and Material Importance Sampling. This makes the usage of objects as area lights much easier and faster than before
  • Multiple Motion Transforms (think curved paths and light streaks)
  • Light Path Expressions (LPE) in iray
  • Kepler support for iray 3 in mental ray
