We conclude our investigation on the QCD transition temperature and equation of state (EoS) with 2 + 1 staggered flavors and one-link stout improvement. We extend our previous studies by choosing even finer lattices (up to Nt 16 for Tc, up to Nt 10 and 12 for the EoS). These new results support our earlier findings. A Symanzik improved gauge and a stout-link improved staggered fermion action is taken; the light and strange quark masses are set to their physical values. Various observables are calculated in the temperature (T) interval of 100 to 1000 MeV. We compare our data to those obtained by the "hotQCD" collaboration.
