a cpu with pvs bin 4 is a lot better than a CPU with PVS Bin 1 ?

There seems to be a bit of confusion, about the significance of the PVS value. They relate to Process Corners, and in part to threshold voltage, there is a lot more to it than that, but I'll keep it simple.
So far we've seen PVS values of between 0 to 6.
0 seems to indicate a SLOW corner, this means that its leakage current is lower than a 6, but its timings are slower. In theory, this chip should be good for power consumption, but offer less overclocking potential.
So, 6 means a FAST corner, this means that its leakage current is higher than a 0, but its timings are faster. Again, theoretically this chip offers good overclocking potential, at the expense of possibly higher power consumption.
Firstly, don't worry about it, all these chips have to pass Qualcomm's quality assurance, and lastly a higher PVS number is not necessarily the best, it depends on your priorities.
