The guy in that last video said something about a new chain, does anyone have any info or guess on whats so special about it ?
Husqvarna has introduced their own line of chain now called "X- Cut" followed with a  different # for each pitch and style. The chain as mentioned on the 572XP is labelled  C85.
What I can see from looking at it on my phone the rivets are flattened, the cutter bit appears to be moved further  back from the depth gauge producing a large gullet. It appears to be a narrow kerf cutting chain right out of the box.
To better explain we all know a chain will cut the fastest when the cutters are filed back to almost half with the cutting edge just a little ahead of the rear rivet. That's how this new X-Cut chain is designed new right out of the box.

The host of that video said they tested the the MS462 with a 33RSC chain against the 572XP with the new C85 chisel chain. The 572XP cut 2.2 seconds,  the MS462  3 seconds in the same log.
But the 572XP with the Oregon rebadged H42 chain took over 4 seconds.
