Afaik 5840 should have been RTM but there was a error or bug in it , so ms continued developing and finished with 5940 or 5920 which was renamed to final 6000 then.

No, that was build 5824, according to http://www.windowsitpro.com/Article/Art ... 93967.html.

5840 also probably has the debugging code still in tact, which can impact performance.

The final builds in the beta (rtm-branch I suppose) didn't have any debug-info in them. Well, unless you run the checked builds but noone except idiots and driverdevs does that.
