IBM combo technique tweaks transistors

Researchers at IBM have come up with a new approach to building transistors that could lead to faster, more energy efficient chips in a few years. “Big Blue has managed to combine both strained silicon and a silicon insulator into the same wafer. Strained silicon improves electron mobility, or the speed at which electrons can travel through silicon.”
