The equation of state of QCD at vanishing chemical potential as a function of temperature is determined for two sets of lattice spacings. Coarser lattices with temporal extension of Nt=4 and finer lattices of Nt=6 are used. Symanzik improved gauge and stout-link improved staggered fermionic actions are applied. The results are given for physical quark masses both for the light quarks and for the strange quark. Pressure, energy density, entropy density, quark number susceptibilities and the speed of sound are presented.
