There is also a 27db ADU while the older sensor had a 24db ADU. this will mean we should see higher ISO limit is expanded.

In summary, could see 1 maybe 2 stop improvement.

Where did you get 1-2 stops from? Those sort of jumps are very rare now. I would love for that to be true but have a hard time believing it.

The db gain on the readout of the sensor. Also the QE jump and lack of AMP glow in a Stacked sensor vs a non stacked.

Wouldn't a stacked sensor give more 'amp glow', because the 'amps' are right there on the sensor?


Why not? Where does the heat go, now that it's right there in the sensor?

The stacked process creates secrets that are smaller and thus create less heat. ZWO explains it here.

Scroll about Havel way down to see an example.
