How does the D3 achieve such high ISO?

The jury seems to be in on the Nikon D3's successful implementation of significantly higher and usable ISO than I can achieve with my 1Ds3.

Has Nikon made a breakthrough in sensor design? Or, is the Nikon ISO range a result of a breakthrough in post processing?

Could Canon provide a firmware upgrade for the 1Ds3 that increased ISO to the range achieved by the D3?

Are there white papers that explain Nikon's achievement?

Many thanks for any information you might have. There are occasions when I sure would like my 1Ds3 to have the higher ISO capability. So, it sure would be nice if Canon engineers merely have to come up with a firmware upgrade.

Hope springs eternal.
