AMD are now using strained silicon in their processors to improve performance. The technology has been incorporated into the company's new 90nm chips and will soon find its way into the company's 130nm products later this year.
But, AMD is gaining market share mostly in server's, where people are aware of performance and power usage..

At least Intel had overclockability going for them in the Netburst days. Now AMD doesnt even have that going for them. They need to do something or theyll start to lose market share pretty quick.
Yeah, i'd say P4's used quite a bit of wattage.

But you forget that we make up like %5 of the computer world so Overclocking is not a real big deal when it comes to chip makers. They get like 90% if there sells to OEM that (Guess what) can't overclock.

Intel and AMD both utilized a single strain of the silicon. AMD begain with 90nm SOI. Intel still uses this single process. AMD is now using a new method of "Straining" the silicon process ie. "Dual-Stress Liners" in their 65nm chips. The Dual Stress Liner technology will "strain" or "stretch" the silicon atoms which will serve the purpose of increasing the transistor switching abilities of the chip. AMD's has purported that their future (read 45nm chips) CPU's will use four different stretch characteristics thus increasing the stress by a factor of 1.4.

Will that be enough for them to be able to crank up the speeds on the chips?

Considering their first 65nm parts I wonder myself. The first 65nm parts are indeed a no joy product for enthusiasts.
