basically steppings are a number letter code they use to then act as a kind of revision type thing. so basically the G0 has been improved from the older B0 version.

i think they have higher withstand of temperature 11c or sumthin.
and require less power making them a much better o/c and cooler

<<<Please give me Rep if I have helped you<<<
