How does the D3 achieve such high ISO?

You should not compare these two on high ISO speeds

The 1Ds3 has more smaller pixels. A better comparison would be D3 vs 5D as both have the similar pixel count and size. The D3 is better for about 1-2 stops because it is newer with the latest electronics. The 5D follow-on might be a better one to compare with the D3.
