we would probably have to have a whole new tab on the spreadsheet for steppings. It would need different info for each entree. which would make it more useful and organized not scattered info on the front page.
I dont think its a bad idea at all in that way, so the info can be useful and neat, on its own tab.
Wills will have to decide what he thinks on it, if you could come up with a list of info we will need to for its own tab, you know like the horizontal planes, it would make it much easier.
I think you got a good idea of what would be the most useful way to do this, just take a look at our spreadsheet layout and think of what a steppings tab should contain and how it would be best entered. What all do you think should be in it and how should it be lined up, as far as first to last entree?
Manufacturing dates do matter since it's known that older chips tend to not do as well as newer ones will simply because of the improvements that takes place as time goes by.
By looking at such a chart, you could see the date and stepping of a given chip to see what chance it has of being a good clocker. As how it should be organized, manufacturing date would be best and that's how the Socket A Barton core and T-Bred lists were done. Using these as a "Blue Print", you could easily make such a list happen. Next step would be to decide what max voltage to use for such a test run.
My suggestion would be to use 1.45v max as a standard.
Then if 1.45v is good, we would need to determine how to rate them.
As for posting the list, simply entering it within the first post of such a thread is the easiest, simplest way to do it. Spreadsheets are nice but can be a time consuming process within themselves while editing as I've discovered but it can be done.
