These are both SM CJ-4. First column the standard 10W30 Rotella, second column the new much awaited synthetic blend T5. Blackstone comments that both are good oil and should work well with very little difference.

looks almost like the same thing, all numbers look like they are within measurement error.

Main difference in the base stocks. The old was all Group II, the new is a Group II/PAO blend.

So what would be better about the new oil? The basestock possibly keep the TBN high longer for longer drain intervals?

Why would the FP be lower with a high-quality base oil blend?

Because "higher quality" is an irrelevant and arbitrary term. Pao doesn't mean magic juice that is better in every way, as some make it out to be.

Although they appear identical, there are differences in the base oil which a VOA may not make obvious but might be apparant in other tests not shown on a VOA....Perhaps some difference in shear resistance and pour point...

for future searchers....
I read where johnny corrected himself on another thread.
He said he misspoke and T5 is group II/III, no PAO.

Seemed like an interesting oil but for the price I am not sure that the oil is worth the extra $$$ over chevron Delo 400??
