# What is the difference between these two methods of batching with stateful LSTM

With stateful LSTM, are these two methods effectively the same:

for _ in range(3):
batch_input_shape = [1,10,2]
x_batch, y_batch = batcher()
model.train_on_batch(x_batch, y_batch)
model.reset_states()


and

batch_input_shape = [3,10,2]
x_batch, y_batch = batcher()
model.train_on_batch(x_batch, y_batch)
model.reset_states()


i.e. the first method 30 rows of data spread across 3 separate batches of 10 sequences and reset_states() called after all 3 train_on_batch() calls. The second method 30 rows of data submitted in a batch of 3 with 10 sequences, and reset_states() called immediately after.

Assuming it all the same data, and putting aside training times (first method will take longer) is the end result the same?
