A turbine blade is the same as a wing. A wing generates lift by a pressure differential. The larger the pressure differential, the more lift is created. For the turbine this means that there will be a larger amount of torque on the shaft of the turbo applied by the turbine. The impeller will be able to apply a larger force on the air forced into the intake because of this additional torque input. More force, more air, higher efficiency.
