Hyper-V: Can Generation2 VMs be created on a Windows 2012 Host

Hi,
easy one, but I can't find the definite answer on Google:
Can a Generation2 VM be created in Windows 2012 or is this a feature exclusive to Hper-V in Windows 2012 R2?

Thanks,
Ralph

Generation 2 VMs are new to 2012 R2 and cannot be created or imported into 2012.
