How much improvement do the researchers get with high strains? If the improvement is incremental then its just another research article otherwise something to cheer about.

I agree that calibrating out the mobility differences in holes and electrons could be a worthwhile effort

It would be good to have matching mobility in p and n type material, but at what cost? The industry has done a good job in compensating for this mismatch.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
