Technically, not even each CPU from the same week will be the same per se.

There are too many variable, especially variables we don't know, to be able to say with certainty which week is better....you could get a week 30 chip from the outer edge of the wafer that OCs as well as a week 27 from the center, ect, ect, ect.......

As Mikey says.......grab one and try it, it's the only way to know for sure.

Wow havent seen you for ages

What we have been seeing is that unlike certain steppings we had with the Opty's for instance we are not seeing across the board performance guarantees just because its a particular batch. In general week 28 has been overclocking better than the other batches but that is not always the case.

Its a crap shoot...

Never empower an idiot or a trouble maker with a response.... wink.gif
