No, it means that using the original layout and a more modern production fab one would get more of the "good" chips that you already got with the old process. The best 060s run at about a 100 MHz. Perhaps one out of twenty chips can run that fast. Producing the same layout on a better fab would perhaps give you one out of five chips that can run at 100 MHz.

As I said, this is usually the first step you make when moving to a new node. Only then you do a design shrink.
