IBM fabs 90nm G5 using strained silicon

Source: The Register

"IBM's first 90nm chip, the G5-class PowerPC 970FX, incorporates a key technique used by Intel to improve processor performance, it has emerged, courtesy of a small mention tucked away at the end of a Reuters story."

"The upshot: it gains benefits of strained silicon using what is essentially its standard SOI process."
