Default CPU Binning

Hi guys!
I have been reading about CPU Binning and I'm still a bit lost.
What is the difference between processors with different PSV? Does it have to do with quality or speed of the processors?
Or is it how they can handle lower voltages?
What are the advantages of having a PSV of 5 or 6? Any disadvantage?
Any advantage of having a PSV of 0,1 or 2?
Furthermore, is there a big difference at all in battery life and performance?
Cheers!

Why not post HERE

This kind of question have a reply in the last page for example: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=441.

Or is it how they can handle lower voltages? It's this...
What are the advantages of having a PSV of 5 or 6? Any disadvantage? In theory you should undervolt more since these pvs_bin are the higher (with the 7 one), I see no disadvantage.
Any advantage of having a PSV of 0,1 or 2? Less undervolting, in theory..., advantage/disavdvantage it depends if you undervolt
Furthermore, is there a big difference at all in battery life and performance? Performance not really, even if less voltage produce less heat in high load, also in theory. Same thing about battery life, less voltage, blablabla...
I have a pvs_bin 1, I don't undervolt (because I had never see a real and noticeable improvement by undervolting, there is more and better to do for battery life in my opinion and with my tests) and I have no issue in term of battery life with why use nor in term of performance (raw performance, in benchs for example) or heat, etc...

Take a look here for undervolting: Nexus 5 Undervolting thread.

But the best is to try by yourself to see what your CPU can handle or not...

In your opinion what is the best way to save battery life?
