In general, NMOS amplifiers have better speed, but poorer common-mode
rejection due to details of CMOS processing. PMOS amplifiers work best
close to the negative supply, NMOS work better near the positive supply.

Common-mode rejection is fairly important since changes in CM potential
couple into the receiver timing to produce jitter. Driver asymmetries,
ground noise, and mode conversion all introduce common-mode noise.
